What is the correct number of trains?

0 votes

At Delhi Junction an old lady put her head out of the window and asked:
"Guard! How long will be the journey from here to Hathras?"
Gurard replied: "All the trains take five hours either way"
Old Lady: "And how many trains shall I meet on the way?"
This absurd question tickled the guard, but he was ready with his reply:
"A train leaves Delhi for Hathras, and also one from Hathras to Delhi at five minutes past every hour. Right away!"
The old lady calculated and found the number of trains.
