We need Jame's speed at a particular point "when he drove past Inn B"

Statement 1: this statement gives Jame's AVERAGE speed between A & B but provide no information regarding Jame's speed when he was crossing Point B. Hence Insufficient

Statement 2: this statement gives Jame's AVERAGE speed between B & C but provide no information regarding Jame's speed when he was crossing Point B. Hence Insufficient

Combining 1 & 2: We get average speed from A to B and from B to C but there is not information regarding Jame's speed when he was crossing point B. Hence Insufficient

Option E

None of the 2 statements give the definite speed of James. The information given allows us to calculate the average speed of James.

Scenario. What if James was driving at a speed of 1 km/hr but as soon as he reached B he increased it to 10 km/hr and then again reduced it.
