Answer: 1 Mark
Distance covered by car A in 4 liters of petrol is 5.5 km.
Now 1 km=1000 m.
5.5 km=5500 m
Distance covered by car A in 1 litre of petrol = (5500/4) = 1375 metres
Distance covered by car B in 1 liter of petrol = 1800 meters
So car B travels more compared to car A
Difference = 1800-1375 = 425 metres
Car B travels 425 meters more than car A
