This is similar to a rate/work question:
our 'work' is the time lost our 'rate' is x/y seconds per hour and our 'time' is how long the watch has been losing time.
So, to calculate the 'work' = the end time on Wednesday we need to know x/y and when it started losing time.
We'll look for an answer that gives us these qualities, a Logical approach.

(1) gives us only x.
Insufficient.

(2) gives us only y.
Insufficient.

Combined: gives only x/y.
Still insufficient.
