Dear chilukuri

speed of the car = 90 kmph = 25 m/sec

let after t sec of police stated distance between  them are maximum

max speed of police =108 km/h = 30 m/sec

time taken by police to atttain a speed of 25 m/sec=25/5 =5 sec

distance between them will increse  till police man attain a speed og more than 25 m/sec

 distance travell be thief = 25*(5+2) =175 m

distance travell by police =1/2 *5* 5=62.5 m

so distance between them S=175 -62.5 =112.5
