    Answer: (3) 23 min
    Explanation:-
    The average speed of the car = 69 km/hr
    Time taken by car to reached Raipur from Sonagharh = 35 min = 35/60
    = 7/12 hr.
    The distance from Raipur to Sonaghrh = 69 x 7/12
    = 40.25 km
    If the average speed increased by 36 km/hr.
    Then, the speed = 69 + 36
    = 105 km/hr
    Time taken by car to cover 40.25 km = 40.25/105
    = 8.05/21
    = 8.05 /0,383
    = 0.3833 hr
    1 hr = 60 min
    Therefore, 0.3833 hr = 0.3833 x 60
    = 23 min
    Hence, the answer is (3) 23 min.
