# The Quest for 700: Weekly GMAT Challenge

Each week Manhattan GMAT posts a GMAT question on our blog and follows up with the answer the next day. Are you up for the challenge?

In XYZ Building, a flight of stairs connects each floor to the next, and each flight of stairs is separated from the next flight by a landing. Josie takes twice as long to climb a flight of stairs at a constant rate as she does to cross a landing at another constant rate. If it takes Josie 13.3 minutes to climb 13 flights of stairs and cross the landings between flights, not counting the landings at either end, how long will it take her to climb 27 flights and cross the intervening landings (again not counting landings at either end) at the same rate of travel?

(A) 27.6 minutes
(B) 27.8 minutes
(C) 28.0 minutes
(D) 28.2 minutes
(E) 28.4 minutes
