**Two trains 140 m and 160 m long run at the speed of 60 km/hr and 40 km/hr respectively in opposite directions on parallel tracks. The time (in seconds) which they take to cross each other, is:**

A. 9

B. 9.6

C. 10

D. 10.8

**Solution**

Relative speed = (60 + 40) km/hr = 100 x 5/18 m/sec = 250 / 9 m/sec.

Distance covered in crossing each other = (140 + 160) m = 300 m.

Required time = [(300 x 9)/250] sec = 54/5 sec = 10.8 sec.

**Answer: D**
