Solution

## The correct option is C 50 kmh−1Given: Speed of first object =40kmh−1 Time travelled by the first object = 5 h. ∴ Distance between A and B = 40×5=200 km Now, the second object starts after an hour. To reach the point B at the same time as the first object, the first object should cover the distance between A and B in the remaining time. Distance to be covered = 200 km Remaining time = 4 h ∴Required speed = DistanceTime taken=2004=50kmh−1
