    Answer is 27 seconds

    Explanation:-
    The length of a train = 420 meters
    The length of a bridge = 180 meters

    Total length covered by the train = 420 + 180
     = 600 meters

    The speed of the train = 80 km/hr
     = 80 x 5/18 m/sec

    Time taken by the train to pass the bridge = 600 x 18/80 x 5 
     = 27 sec

    Then, It will pass a bridge 180 meters long in 27 sec.

    Hence, the answer is (2) 27 seconds
