A is clearly insufficient as we don't have any idea bout last 4 hours.
B is wrong for the similar reason.

Combining,
For the first 8hrs, he travelled 60miles per 1hr.
For the last 8hrs, he travelled 50miles per 1hr.
60mph
|--------|----|
    50mph
|----|--------|

There is some overlap period (of 4 hours). We can't conclude anything as we can't assume anything.

So, E.

==> In the original condition, he is travelling 12 hours, and for con 1) and con 2), it is divided into 8hrs each. Thus, the distance of first 4hrs, the second 4hrs, and the last 4hrs are unknown, hence there are too many variables.

The answer is E.
Answer: E
