Total distance covered in 3 hours = 30 miles

The relative speed of faster runner(x+2 mph) with respect to the slower runner(x mph) = 30/3= 10mph
Relative speed = x+x+2 = 10
2x=8
x=4 mph
Speed of faster runner= x+2 mph= 4+2 mph
=6 mph

Hence, Answer is D

total speed for 3 hrs to cover 30 miles ; 30/3 = 10 mph
so since they are running opposite so total speed = x+x+2 = 10
x= 4mph
and fast = 4+2 ; 6mph
IMO D
