Solution

The correct option is A 450 km Given that the bus covered a distance of 480 km in 8 hours. Therefore, speed of the bus =4808=60 km/hr Also given that the speed of the bus is 34 of the speed of the train. Therefore, speed of the train = 80 km/hr Speed of the car =15×8016=75 km/hr Now required distance = speed × time = 75 × 6 = 450 km
