Hint: Here the speed of the car is given in terms of kilometres per hour convert the speed of the hour in terms of metres per second. One kilometre is equal thousand meters and one hour is equal to three thousand six hundred seconds. Using the speed given called the distance travelled by a car when a person shut their eyes for $0.5\sec$.

Formula used:
${{speed = }}\dfrac{{{{distance}}}}{{{{time}}}}$

$90\dfrac{{km}}{h}$ = $90 \times \dfrac{{1000}}{{3600}}\dfrac{m}{s}$
The speed of the car moving is $25m/s$.
${{distance = speed \times time}}$
${{distance = 25 \times 0}}{{.5 = 12}}{{.5m}}$
Hence the distance travelled by a car for a time period of $0.5\sec$ is $12.5m$.
