Shortest time was 3 minutes 40 seconds. Question's asking about the range. The range is the difference between the minimum and maximum time. You have the minimum so now you just need to decide on a maximum. It wants the largest range which means the largest difference which means you want the largest maximum. So ask yourself what is the maximum possible time someone could take to complete the task based on the data in the table.

Could the highest be 20 mins? And then minus 3 mins 40 from 20 leaving it to be 16 mins and 20 sec?

The maximum time is 20mins and the minimum time was 3 mins 40 secs. To find the range you subtract the lowest value from the highest value. Do that, give your answer in mins and secs.

The reason why 20mins is the maximum is because that data range is more than 15 minutes but less than or equal to 20mins, making 20mins the highest possible value.

Does this make sense? Hope this helps!

20 mins - 3 mins = 17 mins
17 mins - 40 secs = 16 mins and 20 secs
