frequency heard by the policemen is 100-15=85% of total

 let n be the freuency of sound emmited by car horn

 we can use ,N=nV/V-v

 here N is appherent frequency ,V velocity of sound ,v velocity of car and n frequency of horn

 v= 58.2m/s

 speed of sound is directly proportional to underoot T

  v=k(t^1/2)

 v1/v2=(t1/t2)^1/2

  T=1092k
