I get B

for the 1st case:

time taken = y/x + (40-y)/1.25x = (40+0.25y)/1.25x

for the second case:-

time taken = 40/x

To find the ratios between time taken, divide one time by the other. The x terms cancel out and we get an expression in terms of y.

B

Time taken when travelling at different speeds = y/x + 40-y/1.5x
= 0.5y + 40/1.5x

Time taken when travelling at constant speed = 40/x

Percent = (0.5y +40/1.5x)*100/40/x
= (0.5y + 40)/ 60

hence only y is required.

Hence B is suff
