Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : 245 metre

Given:

Speed \(=\left(45 \times \dfrac{5}{18}\right)\) m/sec \(=\left(\dfrac{25}{2}\right)\) m/sec

Time = 30 sec.

Formula Used:

 Distance = Speed × Time

Calculation:

Let the length of bridge be x metres.

\(\dfrac{10+x}{30}=\dfrac{25}{2}\)
⇒ 2(130 + x) = 750

⇒ x = 245 m.

Conclusion:

Length of bridge will be 245 metres
