A man cycling along the road noticed that every 12 minutes a bus overtakes him and every 4 minutes he meets an oncoming bus. If all buses and the cyclist move at a constant speed, what is the time interval between consecutive buses?

A) 5 minutes
B) 6 minutes
C) 8 minutes
D) 9 minutes
E) 10 minutes

[Reveal] Spoiler: Solution
B + C)*4 = (B - C)*12
or, B=2C
Hence,distance b/w two buses in same direction,d=4*(3/2)B=6 B
Therefore, time gap=d/B=6 minutes
