Speed = Dist/Time

First Trip:
10kms | 30kms
|------------|------------------------------|
30kms/hr | 15km/hr
Therefore total time taken in hrs = 10/30 +30/15 = 7/3 hrs = 140 mins


Second Trip:
40kms
|----------------------------------------|
20km/hr
therefore, total time in hrs = 40/20 = 2hrs = 120 mins


Difference = 20 mins


A. 15

B. 20

C. 35

D. 45

E. 50
