the trains started simultaneously, they will meet at equal point. so the distance they cover will be in ratio of their speed. Since the train from Bombay has covered 700 km and the train from Kolkata has covered 1600 – 700 = 900 kms, the ratio of their speeds will be 700 : 900. The answer is E. 7 : 9
