One of the questions from Nihongo So-Matome N3 - Listening:

男【おとこ】の人【ひと】と女【おんな】の人【ひと】が話し【はなし】ています。男【おとこ】の人【ひと】は、明日【あす】何時【なんじ】ごろ家【いえ】を出ます【でます】か。

女【おんな】:明日【あした】の飛行機【ひこうき】、何時【なんじ】?
男【おとこ】:えーと、16時半【じはん】出発【しゅっぱつ】。
女【おんな】:国際線【こくさいせん】だから、2時間【じかん】前【まえ】には着いて【ついて】おかないとね。えーと、空港【くうこう】までここから2時間【じかん】かかるとして・・・
男【おとこ】:そんなにかからないよ。今【いま】、電車【でんしゃ】、速い【はやい】のがあるし。1時間半【じかんはん】あれば十分【じゅうぶん】だよ。

男【おとこ】の人【ひと】は、明日【あす】何時【なんじ】ごろ家【いえ】を出ます【でます】か。

1 午後【ごご】1時【じ】ごろ
2 午後【ごご】1時半【じはん】ごろ
3 午後【ごご】2時【じ】ごろ
4 午後【ごご】2時半【じはん】ごろ

Can someone explain why the answer is 1?

In my opinion, 男 said that the plane will fly at 16.30 pm. And, he also implied that it takes only 1 hour and a half to arrive at the airport. So I think that they will leave their house at 15.00 pm. (although it's not in the answer choices)

The woman also says 2時間前には着いておかないとね, "you need to get there 2 hours early". So it's 14時半 (午後2時半) that is the goal for arrival at the airport, and it takes 1時間半 to travel to the airport, so that's the difference between the 16時半 airplane departure and the 午後1時ごろ house leaving time.
