Answer: (1) Both reach at the same time
When P starts running for 300 m and Q for 500 m then, the ratio of speeds of P and Q is 3 : 5.
According to question P has already covered 200 m when Q is starting at starting point and Q needs to cove 300 m more mean while P covers this 300 m when Q can cover 500 m. So, both P and Q will reach the finishing point at the same time.
Thus , the answer is (1) Both reach at the same time.
