  The velocity of a man with respect to ground
\overrightarrow{\mathrm{V}}_{\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{g}}=\overrightarrow{\mathrm{V}}_{\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{A}}+\overrightarrow{\mathrm{V}}_{\mathrm{A}}=-1.8+36
The velocity of man w.r.t. B

\overrightarrow{\mathrm{V}}_{\mathrm{m} / \mathrm{B}}=\overrightarrow{\mathrm{V}}_{\mathrm{m}}-\overrightarrow{\mathrm{V}}_{\mathrm{p}} =-1.8+36-(-72) =106.2 \mathrm{~km} / \mathrm{hr} =29.5 \mathrm{~m} / \mathrm{s}
