Statement 2 says: Vincent takes twice as long as Roger to chop down trees.

so example if Roger takes 15 min to chop 1 tree Vincent will take 2*15 = 30 mins to chop 1 tree
Or if Roger takes 5 hours to chop x trees Vincent will take 2*5 = 10 hours to chop same number of trees ie x trees

So just whatever time Roger take to complete a work Vincent will take double of time to do same amount of work.

In question stem Given that -> Roger takes 1 hour to chop 4 trees => Vincent will take 2*1 = 2 hour to do same work ie to chop 4 trees.

And that is the question. We have to find number of hours taken by vincent to chop 4 trees.
So statement 2 is sufficient.
