Correct Answer - Option 1 : 30 km

Given:

Distance between two Stations = 32 km

Speed of Eagle = 6 km/hr

Speed of Train = 6.4 km/hr

Concept:

The time for which the eagle travels is equal to the time taken by train to travel from Garia to Chandni.

Formula Used:

Distance = Speed × Time

Calculation:

Time taken by train = Distance/Speed

⇒ 32/6.4

⇒ 5 hours

∴ Distance travelled by eagle when train reaches chandni = Speed of Eagle × 5 hours

⇒ 6 × 5

⇒ 30 km
