Two stations A and B are 110 km apart on a straight line. One train starts from A at 7 a.m. and travels towards B at 20 kmph. Another train starts from B at 8 a.m. and travels towards A at a speed of 25 kmph. At what time will they meet?

A. 9 a.m. B. 10 a.m.
C. 10.30 a.m. D. 11 a.m.

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Suppose they meet x hours after 7 a.m.

Distance covered by A in x hours = 20x km.

Distance covered by B in (x - 1) hours = 25(x - 1) km.

Therefore 20x + 25(x - 1) = 110

=> 45x = 135

=> x = 3.

So, they meet at 10 a.m.
