Hi..

Speed is 2km/hr.
If the vehicle speed is x, the relative speed between the two is x-2 km/hr as both are traveling in the same direction.

Now this relative speed should be equal to 0.6km in 6 min or 6km in 60min, that is 6km/h..
Thus (x-2)=6...x=8

Hello dharam44 ; you sure its 700 level question?
anyways soln below
relative speed in same direction
car speed = x ad man = 2kmph
x-2
distance
0.6 and time 6 mins

we can say
6 = ( x-2) * 6/60
solve for x = 8 KMPH
IMO A
