Answer : 4. "Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient"
Explanation :

Answer: D) Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient Explanation: Let distance between A & B = d kmLet speed in still water = x kmphLet speed of current = y kmph from the given data,d/x = 2 From A) we get dFrom B) we get d/x+yFrom C) we get y   So, Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient to give the answer i.e, the speed of upstream.
