Q19) Answer : C
All of the options give 0.5 of the interval to each of the two vendors. Then why only C is correct?

Is it because whoever moves first will think to maximise his interval cover and only 1/2 assures that? Because then whatever the follower chooses the first mover has at least 0.5 to him and then the follower too sets up at 1/2 to minimize his losses? Or any other reasoning

Correct reasoning.

Same case discussed in Hal Varian.
