Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Let the man got caught after  t second....

distance traveled by man in t sec = Speed * time = 1.1 *t   m

distance traveled by dog in (t-2.1) sec = Speed * time = 2.2*(t-2.1)    m

the moment when dog caught man  : Distance traveled by both will be same hence

1.1t = 2.2 (t-2.1)

or 1.1t = 2.2t -4.62

1.1t = 4.62    ot t = 4.2 sec

Hence distance = 1.1*4.2 =   4.62 m (Answer)
