None of these
The Usual Method
A covers half of the distance at 100 kms/hr and the remaining half at 50 kms/hr.Hence average speed of A =
2501001000050100150
× ×= =+
66.67 kms/hrAverage speed of B for the whole journey =
1005015022
+= =
75 kms/hr
Average speed of B > Average speed of A,B will reach Y before A does.
(Ans: b)
Estimated Time to arrive at the answer = 45 seconds.
