    Answer: (3) 16 sec.
    Explanation:-

    Two trains each 220 m long.
    Speed of first train = 45km/h = 45 x 5/18 = 25/2m/s
    Speed of other train = 54km/h = 54 x 5/18 = 15 m/s.
    Total distance covered by both trains  = 220 + 220  = 440 m.

    They will cross each other = 440/ (25/2 + 15)
    = 440 x 2 /55
    = 16sec.

    Hence, they will cross each other in 16 sec.
