Quantity A Quantity B
Value of “q 20

 

  • A. Quantity A is greater. 
  • B. Quantity B is greater. 
  • C. The two quantities are equal. 
  • D. The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Answer: A

Explanation:

p/q=5.16

So,

p=5.16*q

p=(5+0.16)*q

p=5q+0.16q

We know the division rule, Number = Divisor * Quotient + Remainder.

So, 

0.16*q should be a positive integer as it represents the remainder.

OR

Given “p” and “q” are positive integer.

“p” will be positive integer only if, 0.16q is an integer.

16q/100=4q/25

q” should be a multiple of 25 then only 4q/25 will be an integer.

Hence the answer is Quantity A is greater than B.

So, the answer is A.
