Q. |
## A train 240 m long passed a pole in 24 sec. How long will it take to pass a platform 650 m long? |

A. | 89 sec |

B. | 90 sec |

C. | 91 sec |

D. | 92 sec |

Answer» A. 89 sec | |

Explanation: The speed of the train is Distance/Time = 240 m / 24 sec = 10 m/sec. When the train crosses the platform, it travels the length of the train plus the length of the platform. So, the total distance = 240 m + 650 m = 890 m. Therefore, the time taken to cross the platform = Distance/Speed = 890 m / 10 m/sec = 89 sec. |
