    Answer:

    \huge\bold\pink\star\purple{SOLUTION :-}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Suppose the thief is overtaken x hrs after 1:30 p.m.

    Then distance covered by the thief in

    x hrs = Distance covered by in :-

    (x -  \frac{1}{2} )hrs

    Hence,

     =  > 60 = 75(x -  \frac{1}{2} )

     =  > 15x =  \frac{75}{2}

    x =  \frac{5}{2}  = 2.5hrs

    Time = 3p.m. will be overtaken .
