Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : 40sec

Given,

Ram and Shyam run at the speed of 40m/s and 20m/s respectively on the circular track of 800m

Calculations:

Time taken by P to complete one round = 800/40 = 20

Time taken by Q to complete one round = 800/20 = 40

LCM of 20 and 40 = 40

Every 40sec they would be together at the starting point.

∴ The required answer is 40sec
