u r not retarded.
they both dont start at time zero but 1 seconds,
look for the values of the first one at time t=2 for A 1L is left so fev1/fev= 4/5=80
for B = (5-3.5)/(5-2) which is 1.5/3=50

Thank you so much!!!!!!

The explanations in Qbank make it seem so difficult and I don't think they mentioned it starts at 1 second.

Again thanks a lot Dr. KG.
