    Answer: (d) 24 km 

    Solution:-
    Let the total journey be X km.

    According to the question,
    X – (2 X/15 +  9 X/20 ) = 10
    X –  {(4 x 2 X + 3 x 9 X)/60} = 10
    X –  (35 X/60) = 10
    (60 X – 35 X)/60 = 10
    25 X = 600
    X = 600/25
    X = 24

    So, the total distance of the journey is 24 km.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (d) 24 km.
