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.
