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
