B

If she is able to eat at 1/3 her time 3 slices of pie it means that she can eat 3 slices * 3 1/3 of time.

So she can eat just 9 slices within given time horizon.

IMO...B

Let x be the original time.
Efficiency or Rate (Aaliyah) =9/X (since she can eat 3 slices in x/3 time)

Therefore
No. of slices that she can eat in X time = X(time) * 9/X(efficiency or rate) =9 slices.

B is the answer.

Say Aliyah eats at rate R pie/min

ST-1:
Doesn't tell anything about rate or time. Not Suff.

ST-2:
Say, Aaliyah was given time "T" to eat.
At rate R pie/min Aliyah could eat "RT" no. of pies.
If she was given additional T/3 time ie. total 4T/3 mins she could eat 3 more pies. For time 4T/3 mins at rate R pie/min she eats "4RT/3" pies.
Now,

(4RT/3) - (RT) = 3
Solving this we get RT=9 and 4RT/3=12.
Therefore, Aliyah didn't have enough time to eat 12 pies. In given time she could only eat 9 pies. If she was given additional T/3 mins she could all of 12 nos. of pie.
Hence, ST-2 is Suff.
Answer = B
