Time taken by Akash = 4 h

Time taken by Prakash = 3.5 h

For your convenience take the product of times taken by both as a distance.

Then  the distance = 14km

Since, Akash covers half of the distance  in 2 hours(i.e at 8 am)

Now, the rest half (i.e 7 km) will be coverd by both prakash and akash

Time taken by them = 7/7.5 = 56 min

Thus , they will cross each other at  8 : 56am.
