B.

In stmt1, we do not know the value of R. It can be 200,000 or 101 and accordingly, the number of hours will change.

It has to be B.

question stem --> for first four hours r dollars, for the remaining 0.2r dollar for each hour. Here r>100

(1) \$288. Maybe r=101 or 200 or 288 itself. We would never know. Insuff.

(2) 2.4r This means r + 1.4r
so totally 4 + 7 hours. That makes 11 hours. Suff.

IMO B

Stat 1 implies
r + (n-4)0.2r=288 ..........one equation two variables
lets put n=11 we get 2.4r=288 => r> 100
lets put n=9 we get 2r=288=> r>100
hence nothing much can be concluded

Stat 2 implies

r + (0.2)7r = 2.4r hence n=11 which is >10

suff
