    A:B:C = 90:75:60
    B : C = 75 / 60 = ( 75 x 10075 ) / ( 60 x 10075) = 100 / 80

    Correct Option: B

    A : B : C = 90 : 75 : 60
    B:C = 75 / 60 = ( 75 x 10075 ) / ( 60 x 10075) = 100 / 80
    Hence, in a game of 100 points, B can give C(100 - 80)
    = 20 points.

    Total speed of car, bus and train = 72 × 3 = 216 Km
    Speed of car and train = ( 5 + 9 ) x 216 / ( 5 + 9 + 4 ) = 168 Km

    Correct Option: C

    Total speed of car, bus and train = 72 × 3 = 216 Km
    Speed of car and train = ( 5 + 9 ) x 216 / ( 5 + 9 + 4 ) = 168 Km
    Average = 168 / 2 = 84 Km
