    Answer: (3) 7.2 sec

    Explanation:-
    The length of the train = 180 m
    The speed of the train = 90 km/hr
    Then, the speed of the train in m/sec = 90 x 5/18
    = 5 x 5
    = 25 m/sec

    Time taken by train to pass a post  = 180/25
    = 7.2 sec.
    Hence, the answer is (3) 7.2 sec
