Statement 1 is sufficent Statement 2 is insufficent because only average speed of to and fro is given. there are no indicators on what was the distance or time taken for the trip one way or for round trip

D=Speet*time
D=S*T
1) D=1.5(s)*2
3S=ST, solve for T, T=3 hrs..
B) insuff..
A it is..
Statement 1 says that if Betty' speed has been 1 1/2 times as fast , the trip would have taken 2 hours...
Doesnt it mean Is 'S' was original speed new speed = s + 1 1/2 S = 5/2 S and not 1.5 S????

You can also use ratios.
1.5 times as fast means that if Betty's speed was 2s actually, 1.5 times would mean 3s. The ratio of actual speed : hypothetical (increased) speed = 2:3 Therefore, ratio of actual time : hypothetical time = 3:2 (because time is inversely proportional to speed)
The hypothetical time has been given to be 2 hrs. So the actual time must be 3 hrs. _________________
