Tossing a coin in a moving train.

if a man tossed a coin in a moving train and the coin fell back then in which type if motion train is moving? and how?

Answer: This shows that the train is accelerated. When the coin was thrown, it had the same velocity of the train. If the train was not accelerated, the coin would have fallen on to the hands of the man itself. But the accelerated train moves a greater horizontal distance than by the coin.
