Answer: (4) 5hrs
Explanation:-

The speed of bus = 40 km/h
Time taken by bus to covered the distance = 6 h 15m = 25/4 h.
Distance = 40 x 25/4                                                   (distance = speed x time)
                 = 250 km
The speed of bus = 50 km / h
Then, time taken by bus to cover 250 km = 250/50 = 5 h.

Hence, the answer is (4) 5 hours.
