Answer: (2) 32 km/hr.
Explanation:-
The speed of a person = 24 km/hr
Speed in m/sec = 24 x 5/18
= 4 x 5/3
= 20/3  m/sec

The speed covered by a person  in  8 min = 20 x 8 /3
= 160/3  m

If he want to covered the same distance in 6 min.
Then, the speed of the person = 160/3 x 6
= 160/18 m/sec
Speed in  km/hr. = 160 x 18/18 x 5
= 160/5
= 32 km/hr.
Hence, the answer is (2) 32 km/hr.
