If Danielle ran a race at a constant speed, at what time did she finish?

(1) Danielle started the race at 8:00 a.m.
Nothing about speed..
insuff

(2) At 9:30 a.m. Danielle was halfway through the race, and at 10:00 a.m., she was 2/3 of the way through the race.
now we have a time frame 10:00 am - 09:30 am AND also the fraction of race completed = \((\frac{2}{3}-\frac{1}{2})\) of total
So (2/3-1/2)=1/6 in half an hour and full in 6*1/2=3hrs
Since half the race at 0930, another 3/2 hrs to complete it.. thus 0930+0130=1100
so suff
B

Let us look at:
Statement 1: At what time Danielle started wouldn't totally help in answering at what time would she finish. So, straight-way, this option ain't sufficient. Eliminate A and D. Although this information might be useful further, let's see...

Statement 2: At 9:30 a.m. Danielle was halfway through the race, and at 10:00 a.m., she was 2/3 of the way through the race.
Let us assume the total distance of the race to be D.
Statement implies that in 30 mins (9:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m.) Danielle covered the distance = (2/3)D-D/2=D/6.
I.E.
1) D/6 distance in 30 mins
2) Danielle had covered D/2 by 9:30 AM, and hence had to cover the next D/2. Using 1) above, D/2 would be covered in 90 mins. Therefore 9:30 AM plus another 90 mins = 11 AM.
So, Danielle will complete the race by 11 AM.

HENCE Statement 2 suffices. Therefore, answer is B. Hope this was useful.
Happy preparing. Good Luck!

At what time Danielle finishes the race?

Statement 1: Danielle starts the race at 8 am.

Clearly not sufficient.


Statement 2: Let X miles be the Total Distance of the race.

So Danielle finishes a distance of (X/2) - (2X/3) = X/6 miles in 30 mins, since she reached X/2 at 9:30 am & 2X/3 at 10:00 am.

So the time required to finish final X/3 miles = ((X/3) * 30)/(X/6) = (30*6)/3 = 60 mins

Hence the time at which she finished the race = 10:00 am + 60 mins = 11:00 am

Statement 2 is Sufficient.


Answer B.


Thanks,
GyM

Actually "At 9:30 a.m. Danielle was halfway through the race" is sufficient to answer... half in 0930-0800 or 1hr 30 min , so total in TWICE the time so 3 hrs... time = 08:00 + 3 hrs = 11:00
so suff

Hi Chetan ,

B is correct . But in my opinion, you have added information from statement 1 . we dont have any info which says halfway means journey is started at 8 .Please correct me if I am wrong

Yes, you are correct. Since the statement II was sufficient, I just added extra bit of info that was given in statement I.
