You need to know a time for Joe +Seth+Mike+Tommy+Teddy.
WE know that Joe+Seth =2,5h
We need to find out time for Mike+Tommy+Teddy
1. Mike=Tommy –but we do not know the time and nothing about TEDDY – no
2. Just said that Tedddy is faster than Make+Tommy, but we do not know how much

1-2 no info about time hence why is E
