    Answer: (1) 96 km/hr
    Explanation:-
    Let be the speed of the first train is 4X and speed of second train is 5X.
    Covered distance in 5 hrs by second train = 600 km.
    Therefore, the speed of the second train = 600/5 = 120 km/hrs.
    Then,  5X = 120
    X = 120/5 = 24
    The speed of first train = 24 x 4 = 96 km/hr.
    Thus, the speed of first train is 96 km/hr.
