units in the answer option should be in minutes, considering it to be in minutes the entire duration would be 55 mins-> option E

Option C

Jed: 7 envelops/min.
Ed: 3 envelops/min.
Fred: 5 envelops/min.

J + E = 10 envelops/min. [PS - Work efficiency can be added directly.]
J + E takes = (600/2)/10 mins. to stuff 300 (600/2) envelops. = 300/10 = 30 mins.

J + F = 12 envelops/min. [PS - Work efficiency can be added directly.]
J + F takes = (600/2)/12 mins. to stuff 300 (600/2) envelops. = 300/12 = 25 mins.

Total 30 + 25 = 55 mins. = 55/60 hours = 11/12 hours
