Since you said horizontal frictional surface and did not mention any accceleration the tension has to be zero as long as they are moving with constant velocity.

Now I uderstood the question properly...the tension in the string connecting the wagons in (2000/2500)*A So the tension is not zero but the answer is option (d) tension is 0.8*A
