Interesting, if we assume Train B travels north, the answer is C. But I guess it doesn't say that...

That's what I thought. But this question comes off of the GMAT Club Challengessss (eerie music suddely playes in the background, lightning suddenly strikes outside your window). Whooaaaaahhahahahah...

The answer is E.

To be real, are we going to see a question of this level of trickiness on the real GMAT?
