We know that the train started at 13:53 on Tuesday. The duration of the journey was 7 hours 20 minutes.

1) Therefore the train journey ended at (13 + 7): ( 53 + 20)

=> 20: 73 = 21 : 13

The journey ended at 21:13

2) Let mondays time taken be X. On Tuesday it took 10% more time or 1.1X. Now, the time taken on Tuesday was 440 min.

X = 440/1.1 = 400 or 6 hours 40 minutes. So on Monday 6 hours 40 minutes were taken.

Tuesday's journey took 40 minutes more than Monday.
