Solution

## The correct option is A 75 kmWe can observe that difference in timings on both days is 15 min (and not 5 min, as one day he is late and on the other day he is early)Let the required distance =D km. As time taken at the speed of 50 kmph is more than time taken at 60 kmph, so equation can be formed as D50−D60=1560.Solving this equation,D50−D60=1560⇒60D−50D50×60=1560⇒10D50=15⇒D5=15⇒D=15×5=75∴Distance from his home to his office is 75 km
