A man cycling along the road noticed that every 12 minutes a bus overtakes him and every 4 minutes he meets an oncoming bus. If all buses and the cyclist move at a constant speed, what is the time interval between consecutive buses?

5 minutes
6 minutes
8 minutes
9 minutes
10 minutes

This question seems too wordy to me. Does this ask the time interval the 2 buses travels across the cyclist??
The explanation given for this answer is also vague..Kindly Help.
