Expert Answer:

From the given facts it is clear that the distance between the hills it is marginal condition for producing echo.
In the afternoon, the speed of sound changes with the weather condition such that the minimum distance of hearing echo becomes more than 17 m.
So no echo is formed in the afternoon.
