### Question

A train of length 190 m crosses a bridge at a speed of 45 km/h in 21 seconds. What is the length of the bridge?

**A**

72.5 meters.

**B**

60 meters.

**C**

262.5 meters.

**D**

150 meters.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

In 21 seconds the train covers a distance of 21 × 45 × (5/18) = 262.5 meters. This distance is the sum of the lengths of the train and the bridge. Subtracting the length of the train we get the length of the bridge = 262.5 - 190 = 72.5 meters.
