Since the distance is constant , we can use{ distance=speed*time } for both cases

Also since Ram heard sound in 2 sec and Shyam heard sound in 3 sec ;;;

Which means when Ram heard sound , it is going in the direction of wind , that's why time is less

Let the velocity of wind be x,, then

2*(300+x) = 3*(300-x)

which gives x=60 m/s

X: "I have no idea what your sum is, Y."
Y: "That's no news to me, X. I already knew you didn't know that."
X: "Aha! Now I know what your sum must be, Y!"
