    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.
