Question : Rate if increase of water in reservoir = ?

So we only need to know the difference between the input rate and output rate of water in th ereservoir

Statement 1: The amount of water initially in the reservoir is 1800 gallons

This statement is useless as it doesn't provide any ofthe required information hence

NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: Water is pumped into the reservoir at a rate of 8 gallons per minute and out of the reservoir at a rate of 20 gallons every 3 minutes

Input rate = 8 gallon per min
Output rate = 20/3 gallon per min

Rate of increase of water level = 8-(20/3) = 4/3 gallon per min hence

SUFFICIENT

Answer: option B
