To find how much time required by X and Y to meet for the second time

Since X and Y run in opposite directions and they start at diametrically opposite points, they together need to cover half the circular track = 200 meters to meet for the first time.

After the first meeting point, X and Y will meet again after they together complete one full go around the circular track. Therefore X and Y will meet for the second time after another 400 meters.

So we need to find the time taken by X and Y to complete 600(400+200) meters together.

Statement 1

X and Y met for the first time after 40 seconds.

=> X and Y completed 200 meters in 40 seconds
=> X and Y will complete 600 meters in 40*3 = 120 seconds (Since they are running at their uniform speeds)

Statement 1 is Sufficient

Statement 2

X is 50% faster than Y

The speed of X and y can be

Speed of X | speed of Y

30 mts/sec | 20 mts/sec
60 mts/sec | 40 mts/sec
90 mts/sec | 60 mts/sec

Since we don't have a definitive values for speed of X and Y, we can't calculate the time taken by X and Y to complete 600 meters.

Statement 2 is not sufficient

Analysis of statements together is not required

Hence option A
