A takes 29 mins 10 secs to complete race of 5 kms. B covers distance of 4.794 kms in 29 mins 10 secs which is 192 mtrs less

Ans is 192m

v1= 1000/350(m/s)
v2= 1000/364(m/s)

v=distance/time
whe distance =5000meter
t1=5000*350/1000= 1750second

at that time B was at what distance
d2= 1000*1750/364= 4807.69

so, A win by 5000-d2= 192.3meters
