Solution

The correct option is E 75 m To reach the winning post Bajirao will have to cover a distance of (600 - 250) m, i.e., 350 m When Bajirao covers 2 m, Mastani covers 3 m When Bajirao covers 350 m, Mastani covers (32×350)m= 525m Thus, when Bajirao reaches the winning post, Mastani covers 525 m and therefore remains 75 m behind. Bajirao wins by 75 m.
