    Answer: (1) 208 kilometers 

    Solution:-
    On a map, 
    1 inch = 20 miles 
    Therefore, the distance in 6.5 inches = 20 x 6.5 
     =  130 miles 

    1 miles = 1.6 km
    Therefore, 130 miles = 130 x 1.6 
     = 208 km 

    Then, the distance between  of two town is 208 kilometers. 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 208 kilometers.
