Answer & Explanation
C) 8:56 am
Time taken by Akash = 4 h
Time taken by Prakash = 3.5 h
For your convenience take the product of times taken by both as a distance.
Then the distance = 14km
Since, Akash covers half of the distance in 2 hours(i.e at 8 am)
Now, the rest half (i.e 7 km) will be coverd by both prakash and akash
Time taken by them = 7/7.5 = 56 min
Thus , they will cross each other at 8 : 56am.
