    Answer: (b) 16 km/hr
    Explanation:-
    A car can finish a
    journey  = 10 hrs
    Speed of the car = 56 km/hr
    therefore distance of the journey  = 10 x 56 = 560 km
    Other car finish a journey = 7 hr
    then, the speed of the car = 560/7 = 80 km/hr.

    Increased speed = 80 – 56 = 16 km/hr
    Hence, the speed of the car must be increased by 16 km/hr.
