Total distance from 10 to 90 =80 + from 90 to 70 =20
So the dist is 100×36(per block dist)
Speed = 3600mts/20min =180m/min
B is the answer

Total number of block is (90-10)+(90-70)=100.
Each block is 36 meters. So total distance=3600 meters.
So speed per minute= 3600/20=180m/min

From block 10 to block 90 = 80 blocks
From block 90 to block 70 = 20 blocks

Total blocks Travelled = 100 block ( 80 + 20 )
Each block is 36 meters so 100 blocks = 3600 meters....

Time taken to travel 3600 meters is 20 minutes ( 07:20 - 07:00 )

So, Speed/ minute = 3600/20 = 180 meters/minute..

Answer will be (B)

Ron walks a total of 100 x 36 = 3,600 meters in 20 minutes. So his rate is 3,600/20 = 180 meters per minute.

Answer: B
