A, B and C starts running simultaneously from point P, Q and R respectively on a circular track. The distance between any two of the three points P, Q and R is L and the ratio of the speeds of A, B and C are 1:2:3.

A)10L

B)will never meet

C)40L/3

D)12L

E)none of these

PLEASE REPLY WITH GOOD EXPLANATION FOR THE ANSWER.
