Question 84

# For which of the following options, travel time is the least?

Solution

Travel time for MUMBAI - KANYAKUMARI = $$\dfrac{950}{40}$$ = 23.75 Hours

Travel time for BHUBANESWAR - CHENNAI = $$\dfrac{950}{30}$$ = 31.67 Hours

Travel time for CHENNAI - KOCHI = $$\dfrac{901}{30}$$ = 30.03 Hours

Travel time for MUMBAI - CHENNAI = $$\dfrac{1000}{30}$$ = 33.33 Hours

Hence, we can say that option A is the correct answer.
