In one minute Sacha will cover a distance of 60 m.
It will take Bruno \(\frac{60}{5}\) = 12 seconds to cover 60m.

OA - A

In 1 minute, Sacha runs 6 x 60 = 360 meters, and Bruno runs 5 x 60 = 300 meters. The difference in distance is 60 meters, so Sacha has to wait 60/5 = 12 seconds for Bruno to catch up with him.

Answer: A

In the one minute after Sasha overtakes Bruno, Bruno runs a distance of 5 x 60 = 300 meters, and Sacha runs 6 x 60 = 360 meters. So the distance between the two runners is 360 - 300 = 60 meters.

Thus, it takes Bruno 60/5 = 12 seconds to catch up to Sasha.

Answer: A
