    Answer : (3) 7 hrs
    Explanation:-
    The speed of the boat = 13 km/hr
    The speed of the river = 4 km/hr

    Then, the speed of the boat in opposite direction = 13 – 4
    = 9 km/hr
    The distance covered by boat = 63 km/hr

    Then, the time taken by the boat to covered the distance 63 km = 63/9
    = 7 hrs

    Hence, the answer is (3) 7 hrs.
