    Solution:

    Given that the scale of a map is 1: 4000000.
    Let x be the actual distance between towns.
    So, 1:4000000=5:x  .
    x=5×4000000   x=20000000cm   x=200km  
    The scale of a map is 1:4000000.   If they are 5   cm apart from the map, then the actual distance between the two towns will be 200 km.
    Hence option 1 is the answer.
