    Answer: (3) 9 min
    Explanation:-
    Let the speed of a motorcycle is X km/hr.
    A motorcycle is twice as fast as a car.
    Then, the speed of car = 2 X km/hr.

    The speed of a car is thrice as fast as scooter.
    Then, the speed of scooter = 3 (2 X)
    = 3 x 2 X
    = 6 X km/hr.

    The journey covered by scooter in 54 min.
    Then, journey covered by motorcycle = 6 X = 54
    X = 54/6
    X = 9 min.

    Then, the journey covered by motorcycle is 9 min.
    Hence, the answer is (3) 9 min.
