How many minutes long is time period X?

(1) Time period X is 3 hours long.
(2) Time period X starts at 11 p.m. and ends at 2 a.m.


Statement 1 X is 3*60 mins = 180 mins . Hence Statement 1 is SUFFICIENT

Statement 2
This stament also implies that X is 3 hours long Hence is equal to 180 mins. But wait, we do not know which days's 11pm and 2am are being talked about here. So we cant really say it that simplySo, Statement 2 is NOT SUFFICIENT

Hence answer is A

(1) Time period X is 3 hours long.
(2) Time period X starts at 11 p.m. and ends at 2 a.m.


These are really tricky ones , anyways .....my take :
1) Time frame is specified : 3hrs ==>180 mins : Sufficient
2) Time period X starts at 11 p.m. and ends at 2 a.m.
We may ask.... which 2 a.m. ? i.The immediate next of the stated 11 pm ? ==> 3 hrs ==>3*60 mins
or the one after the 1st 2am ? ==> 3 hrs ==>(3+24)*60 mins
or, the one after the 2nd 2am ? ==> 3 hrs ==>(3+48)*60 mins .......and so on...... : Not Sufficient
Hence Ans A.
