On Wednesday morning a fortune cookie machine ran continuously at a uniform rate to fill a production order.
At what time did it completely fill the order that morning?

(1) The machine started at 8:30 to complete the 2 hour job
Since the machine ran continuously at a uniform rate, and started at 8:30 to complete the 2 hour job.
Time of finishing the order can be found. Hence, sufficient,

(2) The machine had filled 1/2 of the order by 9:30 a.m. and 5/6 of the order by 10:10 a.m.
Since, the machine fills up half(3/6) the order by 9:30am and 5/6 of the order by 10:10 a.m,
we can calculate how much time it takes the machine to finish the order. Hence, sufficient. (Option D)

IMO B

since we are not given the size of production order so we cant conclude that A will be suffice for answer

Clearly D

(1) Start at 8:30 takes 2 h to finish the job. Sufficient.

(2) Have done 1/2 of the job by 9:30 and 5/6 by 10:10. Note that it is at a constant uniform rate. So the machine works at a rate of (5/6-3/6)=2/6 per 40 min. Sufficient.
