E. None of the above

At 1:00PM, Jack walked to school that was between 2.5-3 km from his home, and then returned home between 1:55PM-2:05PM. Hence, Jack walked about 5-6km in between 55min and 1h 05min.

At 1:00PM, Jill walked 5km more than Jack and returned home at 3PM, he walked about 10-11km in 2 hours.

(I) The walking speed of Jill was greater than that of Jack
We could set a specific example to eliminate this one.

If Jack walked for 5km in 1 hour, Jill walked for 10km in 2 hours, then the walking speed of them are equal.
If Jack walked for 6km in 1 hour, Jill walked for 11km in 2 hours, then the walking speed of Jack is greater.

Hence this one is wrong.

II. Jack’s walking speed was close to 3 kilometers per hour
It's clear that this one is wrong.
Jack walked about 5-6km in between 55min and 1h 05min. Hence, his walking speed is between 4.6 and 6.5 km per hour, much greater than 3 km per hour.

III. Had Jack covered 0.5 more kilometers every 30 minutes, his walking speed would have been greater than Jill’s
This one is correct.

If Jack covered 0.5 more km every 30 min, Jack will cover 1 more km every 1 hour. Hence, he could walk about 6-7km in between 55min and 65min.

Jill walked about 10-11km in 2 hours, or walked about 5-5.5km in 1 hours.

It's clear that Jack's walking speed is greater than Jill's. In the worst case, Jack could walk 6 km in 65 min, so his walking speed is 5.54km/h, still greater than Jill's.

Though it's not a hard problem as far as the concepts go, the calculations involved are ugly at best.

Yes the calculations are lengthy, especially so in statement III and not likely to be seen in actual but you can save some time by..
info:-
1) Mr Jack travels 5 to 6 km in 55 to 65 min
2) Jill travels 10-11 in 2 hr

statements..
I. The walking speed of Jill was greater than that of Jack
To confirm, take MAX of Jack
so Jill speed 5.5km/h and jacks speed 6 km in 55min, so >6km/h
NOT necessary

II. Jack’s walking speed was close to 3 kilometers per hour
Don't do any calculations. REQUIRED info in statement I, speed of Jack>6km/h
Again NOT necessary

III. Had Jack covered 0.5 more kilometers every 30 minutes, his walking speed would have been greater than Jill’s
so Jack travels 6 to 7 km in 55-65 min
Take least speed of Jack 6 km in 65 min..
Don't divide 6 by 65, will take a lot of time..
check how much would JIll travel in 65 minutes = 65*5.5=357.5 whereas jack travels 6*60 = 360

YES

Multiplication just lessens down some tedious calculations

Only III true

C
