Answered

- 40 min
- 50 min
- 45 min
- 35 min

Best answer

**Answer: (1) 40 min**

**Explanation:-**

The speed of a man = 4 kmph

Time taken by a man to covered the total distance = 2 hrs 45 min = (2 + 3/4) hrs

= 11/4 hrs

**Formula-**

**Distance = speed x time**

Then, the total distance covered by a man = 4 x 11/ 4

= 11 km

If he is running at a speed of 16.5 kmph the man will cover the same distance,

Then, the time taken by a man = 11/16.5

= 110/165

= 2 / 3 hr

1 hr = 60 min

Therefore, 2 / 3 hr = 2 x 60 / 3 min

= 2 x 20

= 40 min

Hence, the answer is (1) 40 min.
