Cheetah Velocity = 90 ft/s

Antilope Velocity = 60 ft/s

Distance between them = 120 ft

Time taken by Cheetah to Catch Antilope  =  Distance between them / Relative Velocity

                                                                    =  120 / (90 - 60)  

                                                                    =  120 / 30

                                                                    =  4 sec

Answer :

Time taken by Cheetah to Catch Antilope is 4 seconds.
