    Answer: (2) 6 hours 

    Explanation:-
    Two trains approach each other at 30 km/hr and 27 km/hr from two places 342 km apart.
    Then, total time taken by both trains = 342/(30 + 27)
    = 342/57
    = 6 hrs.

    Then, they will be meet after 6 hours.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (2) 6 hours.
