We are given that $$S+R = B+2$$ (where S, R and B represent Stephanie, Regine, and Brian respectively)

Also, minimum value of S,R and B is 20/8 = 2.5

Clearly if S and R are at minimum value of 2.5, B has to be a minimum of 3 and hence has to be slower than S and/or R. For all value of S and R greater than 2.5, B will be slower than at least one of S or R and hence B cant win the race. Between S and R there is nothing to distinguish as they are interchangeable in the given equation, so any of them can win the race.

Minimum value of time for each the three = 20/8= 2.5 hrs
S+R=B+2
2.5+.25=B+2
B (Brian)=3

S and R will have greater value than B. So B could not win the race. Ans. D
