# How Many Minutes does the Train Stop on an Average per Hour? If

A train travels at the rate of 50 km/h without stoppages and it travels at 40 km/h with stoppages. How many minutes does the train stop on an average per hour?

- 6 min
- 12 min
- 18 min
- 14 min

**Answer: (2) 12 min**

**Solution:-**

Due to stoppages, it covers 10 km less per hour.
