This Question is quite unclear ..Please check it ...
Since at first it goes 160 km downstream and returns in 10 hrs ..So the speed of boat in upstream(as boat will return in upstream only) is 16km/hrs

But on the other hand it again goes Downstream and return in 15 hrs so the speed of the boat in upstream is 240/15=16 km/hrs.................
