Let the distance travelled in the first hour be x. Thus, 1.2x = 18 , x = 15. Now, the distance travelled in the 3rd hour = \(18+\frac{1}{4}*18\) = The only option ending with a 0.5 in the decimal's place is C.
C.

Just to clarify in first hour 15 miles travelled in second hour 18 miles ( 3 additional miles) and 3rd hour 22.5 miles ( 4.5 miles travelled)

The numbers in the bracket represents the net increase.
