I agree with OA.. C.

(1) Tells us about Viewcrest and Maple Valley but nothing about Franklin.
(2) We know of some relation among all three cities but we not enough (no rate, time, distance, etc.) to conclude the answer.
(combined) Suff.

oh.. it is a sloppy curved route... :wink:
still, how can we make sure that C is suff????

45(T+1/3)=50T ..is it to be multiplied with "per gallons" ??

A alone is not sufficient
t1 = d/45 = t2+20 = d/55
You can only find the distance d here.

B gives the ratio between the distances.

so A and B both are needed.
