#1
R+F/RF=1/8
so F=2R
so
3R/2R^2= 1/8
R= 12 mins
sufficient

#2
R+C+F/RCF= 1/7
rate of C and R not known
insuffcient
IMO A

bharat8484

Given
let rate of Roland =1/ R and Felicia = 1/F
so time taken by both working together
1/R + 1/F = 1/8
we get
(R+F)/RF=1/8--(1)

#1
given rate of F = 2R
so substitute in (1)
we get
3R/2R^2= 1/8
R= 12 mins
sufficient

Hope this helps.. :)
