    Answer: (3) 875 km

    Explanation:-
    The speed of one train  = 75 km/hr
    The speed of other train = 50 km/hr

    One train found to be traveled 175 km more than other. 
    Then, the time taken by trains to travel journey = 175/(75 – 50)
     = 175/25
     = 7 hrs

    Therefore, the distance covered by the first train  = 75 x 7
     = 525 km

    And the distance covered by the other train B = 50 x 7 
     = 350 km

    Then, the total distance between A and B = 525 + 350
     = 875 km

    Hence, the answer is (3) 875 km.
