B. the average reading speed of the science fiction novel

Step-by-step explanation:

We have,

Average reading speed of the historical fiction novel = x pages per hour.

Since, it is given that,

Victoria's average reading speed of the science fiction novel is 2 pages per hour more than the average reading speed of the historical fiction novel.

So,

Her average reading speed of the science fiction = (x + 2) pages per hour

Thus, the expression (x+2) represents Victoria's average reading speed of the science fiction novel.

Thus, option B is correct.
