Two boats, traveling at 5 and 10 kms per hour, head directly towards each other. They begin at a distance of 20 kms from each other. How far apart are they (in kms) one minute before they collide?

- 1/6
- 1/4
- 1/3
- 1/12

**Answer**

Relative speed of two boats = 5 + 10 = 15 km/hr

In 60 minutes, they cover (together) = 15 km

In 1 minute, they will cover (together) = 15/60 km = 1/4

**The correct option is B.**
