Question statement: Three speed zones within Segment X, 55 - 74 - 55 mph. Leslie is at a certain point but will continue with that speed till the end of segment X.
This itself tells us that Leslie is is in 55 mph zone. If she is travelling within the speed limits, answer is yes.
(1) Leslie’s speed is at least 5 mph below the speed limit that currently applies to her.
She is in 55mph zone, so she is travelling at a speed less than 50 mph.
Sufficient
(2) Leslie will reach the end of Segment X without ever exceeding any speed limits.
We know she is in the last stretch, that is 55 mph zone. So, she never crosses that limit.

I doubt, then statement 2 will not be sufficient.

Great question from GMAC
Question statement: Three speed zones within Segment X, 55 - 74 - 55 mph. Leslie is at a certain point but will continue with that speed till the end of segment X.
So Leslie is in some zone ans she will maintain that speed till end. If she is travelling at 60 mph, she will continue with it till the end of the segment X. If she is travelling at 100 mph or 10 mph, 55 mph zone, she will continue with it till the end of the segment X.
(1) Leslie’s speed is at least 5 mph below the speed limit that currently applies to her.
If she is in 55mph zone, so she is travelling at a speed less than 50 mph.
But if she is in 75 mph zone, she will continue at a speed less than 70 mph, which could be greater than 55 mph.
Insufficient
(2) Leslie will reach the end of Segment X without ever exceeding any speed limits.
We know she has to surely cross the last stretch, that is 55 mph zone. If she was travelling at a speed greater than 55 mph, she would surely cross the third stretch at that speed and thus, cross the speed limit. But, she never crosses that limit. SO, surely she is travelling at a speed that at the most 55 mph.
