480 miles for A in one hour so 160 miles in 20 minutes
510 miles for B in one hour so 170 miles in 20 minutes

480 + 510 = 990
160 + 170 = 330

990 + 330 = 1320 ----> ANS : C

S = D/T

Speed will be combined as both the objects are approaching towards each other, Therefore
S = 480 m/h + 510 m/hr = 990 m/hr = 990/60 m/min (conver it min coz answer required in min)
D = Distance between two objects = 1320
T = D/T = 1320/(990/60) = 1320/(33/2) = 1320*2/33 = 240/3 = 80

Thanks
