    Answer: (b) 7.2 seconds 

    Solution:-
    The length of two trains 100 m & 150 m

    The speed of two trains = 75 km/hr & 50 km/hr

    Time taken both trains to cross each other = (.1 + .15)/(75 + 50)
    = .25/125 hr
    = .25 x 60 x 60/125
    = 36/5
    = 7.2 seconds

    Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 7.2 seconds.
