Each of the three people X, Y and Z were given an identical task to perform. Once started, none of them stopped before the task was completed. If Y takes 4 hours to finish the task, then among X, Y and Z - who finished the task first?

(1) X started at 9 am and he takes 3 hours to finish the task.

(2) Z started at 11 am and he takes 2 hours to finish the task.

Both statements talk about x and z, nothing about y. Insufficient or I didn't get the trick of the question :)

st 1. only about x . z=? insufficient
st 2. only z , no x. insufficient.

Now the question asks us to determine which one of the three finished first. This question is a little ambiguous.
Case 1. As 2 of them start at different timings and the timing of Y is not known , so even if we know respective efficiencies we still do not know when Y started. SO E.

Case 2. Assuming starting time does not matter , Z finishes first. But IMO case 2 is absurd.

So E. I feel like this isnt AT ALL a GMAT LIKE Q.
