    Answer: (c) 120 km.
    Explanation:-
    Let be the distance = X km
    Time taken = 5 hrs
    According to question,  X/2 x 20 + X/2 x 30  = 5                                    (Time = distance/speed)
    (3X + 2X) = 5 x 120
    5X = 5 x 120
    X = 120 km.

    Hence, the length of the journey = 120 km.
