Distance = Speed * Time

Let, Normal Speed = S km/hr
Normal Time = T minutes

now, Distance = S*T = 4*(T+10) = 5*(T-5)

i.e. (T+10)/(T-5) = 5/4

i.e. 4T + 40 = 5T - 25

i.e. T = 65 minutes

i.e. Distance = 5*(T-5) = 5*(65-50)/60 = 5 km . (converting minutes into hour by dividing (65-5) by 60)

(A) 5 km
(B) 10 km
(C) 15 km
(D) 20 km
(E) 25 km

we can solve this considering relation that distance to bus stand is same at both times
so
speed = s kmph and time = t
4*(t+10)=5*(t-5)
t+10/t+5=5/4
solve for t = 65 mins ; 65/60 hrs

distance = 4 * (t+10) = 4* 75 /60 = 5 kms
IMO A
