Ans: D

we need ratio''s time

time = distance/velocity

let the distance be x

and they have given ratio''s of velocities as 4:3:5

Now the ratio''s of time to reach B from A is x/4:x/3:x/5

1/4:1/3:1/5

15:20:12

The answer for this question is D.

We know that time=distance/speed.Three persons walk same distance.Therefore time=1/speed.

(1/4):(1/3):(1/5)=(60/4):(60/3):(60/5)=15:20:12
