St1: A --> 3 feet per step; B --> 2.5 feet per step
But we do not know the time taken for each step.
Not Sufficient

St2: A --> 3 steps/sec; B --> 4 steps/sec
But we do not know the distance covered by each step.
Not Sufficient

Combining St1 and St2,
A --> 3 * 3 = 9 feet/sec; B --> 2.5 * 4 = 10 feet/sec
B is faster
Sufficient

Answer: C
