Time taken by bus to travel from St. Louis to Chicago and back comes to St. Louis = 4 hours
Time taken by bus to travel from St. Louis to Springfield and back comes to St. Louis = 6 hours
Time taken by both buses to meet again in St. Louis will be LCM of 4 and 6 = 12
If the buses start at 12:00 o'clock from St. Louis , they will meet again in St. Louis at 24:00 hours
Answer E

Bus one frequency is 6 hours
Bus two frequency is 4 hours
they will meet again after LCM(6,4)=12 hours
now, both buses arrived at 12 the next time they will meet is at 12+12 = 24:00
