This problem is a typical one in that from the fact that the train passes a person in 18 sec, we can know the length of the train coz a person's width is minuscule ( just like a vertical thinnest rod) ...the train pass a person just as passing itself/ its own length.See my illustration for better vision. Correct answer is A
