Explanatory Answer

Two person to be A and B
A = 2km/hr and B = 4 km/hr
Speed of the train = t km/hr
Given, Train crosses A in 90 seconds (Length of the train is the distance)
t – 2 in 90 seconds and t – 4 in 100 seconds
Ratio of speed is opposite to time
(t – 2) 90 = (t - 4) 100
Solving t = 22km/hr
For A, Speed = t – 2 = 20 km/hr in 90 seconds
So travelling at 22 km/hr ----> \\frac{90 × 20}{22}) ≅ 82


The answer is, "82"
