In order to find out when Xavier will over-take Adam,
we will need to know his relative speed with regard to Adam.
Hence, with the information given in either 1 or 2, it is not possible to find out the time.
But with both the statements, we can find out the time taken(Option C)

(1) Xavier is traveling at 58 miles per hour.

1. Not sufficient.
2. Not sufficient.

1+2: Xavier's relative distance per hour is (58-52)=6 miles. This means, Xavier is 6 miles ahead per hour. So, the time taken to be 3 miles ahead before 2 miles ahead will be \(\frac{60}{6}*3-\frac{60}{6}*2=10\) minutes.

Answer is C.
