Given is a distance-time graph. Any point on the curve will give the distance of object from O. To find how far C has travelled when B passes A, draw a perpendicular from the intersection point of A and B on time axis. The point where it intersects on the C graph, from C draw a perpandicular to y axis . Therefore, distance travelled by C will be (Final distance from O - Initial distance from O)

Therefore, C has traveled 6.5 km when B passes A.
