Answer: (1) 16 km

Explanation:-
The distance traveled by a farmer = 61 km
Total time taken by a farmer to travel the distance 61 km = 9 hrs.

Let the distance be X km which is covered with the speed of 4 km/hr.
Therefore, remaining distance = (61 – X) km

According to the question,
Then, X/ 4 + (61 – X)/ 9 = 9
(9 x X + 61 x 4 – X x 4) /36 = 9
(9 X + 244  – 4 X)  = 9 x 36
9 X – 4 X = 324 – 244
5 X = 80
X = 80/16
X  = 16 km

There are 16 km distance covered with the speed of 4 km/hr.

Hence, the answer is (1)  16 km.
