Explanation

Before Phil leaves, Vinay has traveled for 4 hours; the rate formula is distance = rate × time, so Vinay has gone 40 miles per hour × 4 hours = 160 miles.

Upon leaving, Phil is gaining on Vinay at a rate of 10 miles per hour, because he travels 10 more miles per hour than Vinay.

Now your equation is 160 miles = 10 miles per hour × time, so time = 16 hours. Phil left at 5 a.m., so he’ll catch up to Vinay at 9 p.m., so the answer is choice D.
