Robert Travelled for x,y and for z min.

Total Time : x + y + z

Which is equal to : 3y

Equating both sides we get

x+y+z = 3y

=> x+z =2y ........ Eqn 1

Looking out at options

D Says x =2y
Using it in Eqn 1

2y + z = 2y

=> Z = 0 mins, Which I guess is not possible.

The Ans is D
I hope I am correct with the explanation.
