I'm guessing you left out the multiple choice part of this question to make it difficult, but here's what I've managed to come up with:

If x is the # of hours logged by employee A

rate of logging for a: 120hours/4years =30 hours/year

rate of logging for b = 30+(30*.2) =36 hours/ year

30 hours/ year * 1.5 years = 45 hours
36 hours/ year * 1.5 years = 54 hours

54-45 = 9 hours

So your answer is 9 hours!
