The time required to drive any distance would vary inversely with the (presumably constant) speed. You don't even need to compute this. Driving two hours at 30 mph will get you how far? Is this a roughly the distance you'd go at 50 mph for an hour? Which answer is close?

B. 1.2 hours t = d/r 2 = d/30 d = 60 miles ------- t = 60/50 t = 6/5 or 1.2 hours --> Option B
