Given:: rate of Tyra = $$\frac{3}{2}$$ and time of Tyra = 2

Statement 1: rate of Tyra = rate of Ming = $$\frac{3}{2}$$
so (rate of Tyra + rate of Ming) * Time of Both = 3 lawns
$$\frac{6}{2}$$ * (time of both) = 3
Time of both = 1 hour
so the difference is 2 - 1 = 1 hour. --> sufficient

Statement 2: (time of Tyra) = 2 (time of both) = 2 hours
so (time of both) = $$\frac{2}{2}$$ = 1 hour
so the difference is 2 - 1 = 1 hour. --> sufficient.

so D.

Tyra mows lawns at a constant rate. She can mow 3 lawns in 2 hours. Ming also mows lawns at a constant rate. How much less time would it take Tyra and Ming working together to mow 3 lawns?

1) Both Tyra and Ming mow lawns at the same rate.

2) It takes Tyra twice as long to mow a lawn as it takes Tyra and Ming working together to mow a lawn.

rate of tyra=2/3 (two lawn per three hours)
rate of ming=?

to find how much less time will both take to mow 3 lawns than tyra, we will need ming's rate.
1) rate of tyra and ming are same thus rate of ming=2/3 so we do 2/3+2/3=4/3 then 4/3-2/3 gives solution so 1 is sufficinet

2)time tyra takes is twice than tyra and ming together then again by algebra we can get rate of ming's and so it is also sufficinet

Option D is correct. both are sufficinet independently.
