B..
SInce it travels 75 km in 1 hr, hence 1 km it travels in 48 seconds. At the new speed it travels 1 km in 48+2 = 50 seconds. Hence the distance travelled in 1 hr or 3600 seconds is: 3600/50 = 72 km/hr...

I accord cbrf3,
I have made this equation -
taken speed : X KM/H

(all are in form of timescale - Hour and time=distance 1KM / Speed)

1/X = 2/3600 + 1/75

X = 72 Km
