Let us assume that Arun started running at 10 AM and Barun started at 12 noon.
So, in these two hours distance travelled by Arun is 60 km and the relative speed of Barun w.r.t Arun is 10 km/hr.
So Barun will overtake Arun after =


=6 hrs
So, Barun reaches there at 6 PM.
So, Kiranmala also overtakes Arun at 6 PM.


Let us assume Kiranmala takes 't' time to overtake Arun and the relative speed of Kiranmala w.r.t Arun is 30 km/hr and Arun ran for 8 hrs.
So, distance travelled by Arun is:
While Kiranmala's distance travelled is:
t=4 hours

So, after 4 hrs, Kiranmala will start running
