Statement 1:
(1) This tells us Bill's speed and Sue' speed is same. It also tells us Sue drove 10 KM. So Bill drove 3*10 = 30 KM. So answer is A or D.

(2) This tells us Sue's speed was 64 KMPH. But no relation ship is given to Bill's speed, so this is insufficient.

Answer A.

(1) indicates Sue's dist = 10 KM no mention of bill dist.but speed of both are said equal.-> INSUFFI
(2)speed of sue is =64km/h does not give bill's dist -> INSUFFI

(1) and (2) => indicate sue's time =10/64 and hence bill's time=3*10/64 hrs
also speed of twoo equal =64km/h

hence bill's time,speed known dist can be evaluated.... SUFFI

IMO C
