B

the eqn for charge for a job that takes >4 hrs is

r + 0.2*r*h = Total (h is #of additional hours)

1) r + 0.2*r*h = 288, we have 2 unknowns and 1 eqn. insuff.
2) r + 0.2*r*h = 2.4r
(note that this eqn can be applied because total charge is more than r)
we can solve to find h = 7 , so total 4 + 7 = 11 hrs. suff to answer the Q.

Agree with this approach. I also ended up with B
