A. $1 \frac{1}{3}$ hours
B. 2 hours
C. $2 \frac{2}{3}$ hours
D. $1 \frac{2}{3}$ hours
**Answer: Option A**

Solution(By Apex Team)

Ratio of speed = 3 : 4
Ratio of time taken = 4 : 3 (As Speed ∝ $\frac{1}{\text { Time }}$
When distance remains constant.)
Let time taken by A and B be 4x and 3x hour respectively.
Then,
$\begin{array}{l}
4 x-3 x=\frac{20}{60} \\
\text { Or, } x=\frac{1}{3}
\end{array}$
Hence, time taken by A = 4x hours
=$4 \times \frac{1}{3}=1 \frac{1}{3}$ hours.
