1) It took less than 450 seconds for the child to travel from the first signpost to the second signpost

2) It took more than 400 seconds for the child to travel from the first signpost to the second signpost

Statement A: We are not sure, Whether how much it takes for the travel- It may take 100 sec, 200 sec or even 300 sec- So Statement A is not sufficient.

Statement B: 800 meter(0.8 KM) takes less than 400. so we can say that this definitely did not take more than 400 sec- The answer to this statement is NO- Which is sufficient-

1) It took less than 450 seconds for the child to travel from the first signpost to the second signpost

2) It took more than 400 seconds for the child to travel from the first signpost to the second signpost

Since both the statements are given in the form of time, it is better to convert the question in the form of time. Distance = speed*time (125/60)*t>800? Or t > 384?

Statement 1: t < 450 Possible values of t: t < 384 384 < t <450 INSUFFICIENT
