A man sitting in train travelling at the rate of 50 km/hr observes that it takes 9 sec for a goods train travelling in the opposite direction to pass him. If the goods train is 187.5m long. Find its speed |

✖ A. |
40 km/hr |

✖ B. |
30 km/hr |

✖ C. |
24 km/hr |

✔ D. |
25 km/hr |

**Solution:**

Option(**D**) is correct

Let the speed of goods train be $x$ km/hr.

Then,

\((50+x)\times \dfrac{5}{18}=\dfrac{187.5}{9}\)

⇒ x= **25 km/hr**
