    Answer: (3) 7.2 hours 

    Solution:-
    The speed of bike when not serviced = 50 km/hr
    The speed of bike when serviced = 60 km/hr

    Time taken by serviced bike = 6 hours
    Then total distance covered by serviced bike = 6 x 60
    = 360 km

    So, time taken by bike when not serviced = 360/50
    = 7.2 hours

    Hence, the correct answer is option (3) 7.2 hours.
