Dear Kanchan

Initial velocity of train = 20km/hr. Final velocity of the train = 0 km/hr as it comes to rest finally.

distance =2 km


V² = u² +2as

By putting the values

0 = 400 +4a

a = -100km/hr²

Now to calculate time taken by train to travel 2km to reach the platform.

V = u +at

0 = 20 - 100t

t = 1/5 hr

Distance = speed* time = 60* (1/5) = 12 km
