IMO the correct is D.

The number of pages Ron ahead Michelle when he starts to read: 30 *1.5 = 45 pages.

Since Michelle starts 5 pages behind the page that Ron started:

the distance between R & M = 45-5 =40 pages.

Time taken by Michelle to catch up with Ron: 40/ (50-30) = 2 hours.

Therefore, the time when both meet is: 6 + 2 = 8pm.

Correct me if I am wrong.

-----------------------------------------

Kudo me if my answer is good

The above should be 45 + 5 and not 45 -5 as she has to read additional 5 pages !!

Now,

let us take 8 pm to be the answer !!

for Ron

0.5 pages per minute

time elapsed till 8 pm =210 minutes

pages read by Ron =105 pages

for Michelle time elapsed till 8 pm =120 minutes

thus pages read= 120*5/6=100 pages (minus 5 pages as she started 5 pages behind Ron)

she is actually on 100 -5 = 95

Does not match !!

now add 30 more minutes !!

pages read by Ron =120

pages read by Michelle =150*5/6 = 125 (again minus 5 pages ) =120

MATCH !!

Thus it should be 8:30 pm
