```										hi ankur,
1st of all calculate the relative velocity between these 2 cars ,ie, (60-42) = 18 km/hr.
now mke unit conversion then relative velocity becomes 5m/s.......
since to overtake the 2nd car has to travel 10m as 5m is the length of each car , so 5m to catch up the other car and 5m to clear it.

time taken to do so ,t = 10/5 = 2 sec
to find road distance ,we simply calculate distance travelled by 2nd car...  s = ut  u = 60km/h = 16.7m/s  s = 16.7 *2 = 33.3m
