Option A:

Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked.

Option B:

Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked.

Option C:

BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked.

Option D:

EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked.

Option E:

Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked, and additional data specific to the problem are needed.

Option A is the correct answer.

Since both of them travelled the same distance, we just need to know their speeds to compare the time.

Statement I is sufficient: This tells Steve’s have the greater speed. So definitely Larissa would have taken more time. So sufficient.

Statement II is insufficient: Knowing the distance will not help anything here. So not sufficient.
