AVG SPEED = Total Distance / Total Time

AVG Speed = 240 km/hr
Total Distance = 4 Km
Total Time = 2/120 + 2/X (assume X is the speed for next 2 KM)

So we have
240 = 4/(2/120 + 2/X)
or
60 = 1/(2/120 + 2/X)
or
1+120/X = 1

which is impossible...

So answer is Impossible

he can't acheive average speed of 240 km/h for entire course.
because for avergae speed of 240 km/h for entire course he should complete his course in one minute but he already spent 1 minute for first two km.

so Answer is IMPOSSIBLE
