A?

#1. Since we know the time travelled is the same and ratios of average speed, we know distance travelled by David.

#2. Not sufficient.

Straight A

108/A = x/D
St1: A = 3D/5
108/(3D/5) = x/D
x = 180

A

1) Let time be t. Distance travelled by David be x

Hence
108/t = 3/5 * x/t
X = 108*5/3

Suff

2) we know the time David travelled. No idea about speed. Hence Not suff

A aswell.

from stmt 1) we know the ratio of the avg speed, and since the time is the same we can solve.
from stmt2) we are given the time, but we still don't know the avg speed for david.

Let
Ta = Allen's travel time
Td = David's travel time
Sa = Allen's average speed
Sd = David's average speed
Da = Allen's distance
Dd = David's distance


Given Ta = Td, Da= 108

Dist = speed x time
Dd = Sd x Td = Sd x Ta = Sdx 108/Sa

Dd = 108 x (Sd/Sa)

S1: Given Sa/Sd = 3/5
Sufficient to compute Dd.

S2: Ta = Td = 3 hrs.

Not sufficient.

Answer: A
