  1. We can't tell because you didn't tell us the number of slices were in Jim's pizza.

  2. Assuming that both pizzas are cut into the same number of slices, they must have a multiple of 4 slices each, since we can assume that 1/4 a pizza is a whole number of slices.

    If the pizzas had 4 slices each, then Jim had 3 and Kate had 1.

    If there were 8 slices, Jim had 3 and Kate had 2.

    If 12 slices, they both had 3.

    Since
    (a) very few pizzas are cut into 16 or more slices
    (b) the question's wording implies that they did not have the same number of slices each,

    I think we can assume that Jim ate more than Kate.
