    Answer: (3) 280 km
    Explanation:-
    Let be the distance covered by the first train = X km
    And distance covered by second train = (X + 20) km
    Then ,
    X/130 = (X + 20)/150
    by cross multiplication,
    150X = 130X + 130 x 20
    150X – 130X = 2600
    20X = 2600
    X = 2600/20
    X  = 130 km
    Total distance = X + X + 20 = 130 + 130 + 20
    = 280 km
    Hence, the answer is (3) 280 km.
