Let    tea set costs:  T                lemon set costs:  L

then   gain =  - T * 5 /100  +  L * 15/100  =  Rs 7
=>  15 L - 5 T = 700    --- (1)

also    T * 5/100 + L * 10/100 =  Rs 13
=>   10 L + 5 T =  1300    --- (2)

add the equations to get:    L = Rs 80         and then  T = Rs 100
=========================

speed of A =  v1  kmph
speed of B = v2 kmph        let v2 > v1

if they travel in the same direction:
( v2 - v1 ) * 9 hrs =  60 km
=>   v2 - v1  = 20 / 3  kmph      ---- (1)

if they travel in opposite direction towards each other:
(v1 + v2) * 9/7 hrs = 60  km
=>  v1 + v2 =  140/3  kmph     --- (2)

adding the two equations we get:    v2 =  80/3 kmph
v1 = 20 kmph
