A and B start running simultaneously. A runs from point P to point Q and B from point Q to point P. AA's speed is 6/5 of B's speed. After crossing B, if A takes 5/2 hr to reach Q, how much time does BB take to reach PP after crossing A?
A.3 hr 6 min
B.3 hr 16 min
C.3 hr 26 min

Let's assume arbitrary values for speeds of A and B: B - 50 kmph and A - 60 kmph

If the total distance from P to Q is x km, the point at which A and B make contact is 5/2 * 60 or 150 kms from Q.
The total distance of B from point P is x - 150. The time taken for A and B to reach the point is the same.

Equating the times we get $$\frac{150 - x}{60} = \frac{150}{50}$$ -> $$x = 330$$

The total distance that B travels towards P after the point of contact is 180km.

Therefore, B will take $$\frac{180}{50} * 60 = 216$$minutes or 3 hour, 36 minutes(Option C) to reach P after crossing A.
