Answer: (1) 610 m
Explanation:-
Distance covered in 1 min = 50 m
Distance covered in 2 min= 90 m
Thus, distance covered in 2nd min = 90 – 50 = 40 m
Total distance covered in 3 min = 130 min
Thus, distance traveled in 3rd min = 130 – 90 = 40 m

By seeing this pattern, we can say that after 2nd minute he will cover 40m distance every minute.

So, total distance covered in 15 min = Distance covered in 1st minute + distance 50 + 14 x 40
= 50 + 560
= 610 m
Hence, the answer is (1) 610 m.
