The cars are moving towards each other at a relative speed of 40kmph + 35kmph = 75kmph

This is how fast the distance between them is shrinking. Now, after four hours, the distance between them would have shrunk by 300 kms ( 4* 75). But since they started with only 200 km to begin with, they must have met somewhere in the middle and continued on for another 100 km

Hence the distance between them would be 100km.


Option (A) is our choice.

Best,
Gladi
