Statement a gives no information about quantity of X widgets - insufficient

Statement b states that 40% of x is completed in 2 hrs and the question asked is about time and it's stated that he machine operates at a constant rate and operation is not interrupted

sufficient

(B) imo

Responding to a PM..

Information given
1. Constant rate
2. x widgets

(1) The machine produces 150 widgets per minute.
So we know the speed but nothing about X
Insufficient

(2) At the end of 2 hours, the machine has produced 40% of the widgets needed to fill the order.
So in 2 hrs, work done = $$x*\frac{40}{100}$$=0.4x
Thus 0.4x is produced in 2 hrs
So x in $$\frac{2}{0.4}$$=5 hrs
Sufficient

B
