    Answer: (2) 24 km
    Explanation:-
    Time taken by a boy to cover the distance 12 km  = 90 min
    90 min = 90/60 = 3/2 hr.
    Then, the speed of the by cycle = 12 x 2/3
    = 4 x 2 = 8 m/hr
    Time = 3 hr  (Given)
    Then,  he covered the distance  by cycle in 3 h = 8  x  3
    = 24 km
    Hence, the answer is (2) 24 km.
