Solution

The correct option is A

Kushagra


Total distance to be covered = 5 km

Distance covered by Manish = 2 km

Fraction of the distance covered by Manish
= 25

Fraction of the distance covered by Kushagra =12

To compare these fractions, we write them as like fractions.

25=2×25×2=410

12=1×52×5=510



Since 410<510,

25<12

Therefore, Kushagra ran more.
