    Answer: (2) 400 m
    Explanation:-
    Let the speed of boy = X  &  the speed of car = Y
    Formula-
    Time = distance/speed
    = 10/X = 25/Y
    X/ Y = 10/25

    1 km = 1000 m
    Then,
    Distance covered by boy = time taken by car for travelling 1000 m x speed of X
    time taken by Y = 1000/Y

    Then, distance covered by boy = 1000/X  x Y
    1000 x 10/25
    = 400 m.
    Hence, the answer is (2) 400 m.
