Answer: (3) 5 km/hr

Explanation:-
Two men are standing 48 km apart and start walking to each other.
The speed of first man = 3 km/hr
Then, the distance covered by the first man in 6 hours = 6 x 3 = 18 km

Remaining distance = 48 – 18
= 30 km

The distance covered by second man in 6 hr = 30 km
Then, the speed of the second man = 30/6 = 5 km/hr

Hence, the answer is (3) 5 km/hr.
