  • 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: B 


Let the price of each pen be 1 dollar.

Then the cost price of “x” pencils is “x” dollars 

Cost price of 8 pencils is 8 dollars.

Given, the selling price of “x” is 8 dollars

Loss = C.P- S.P

Loss = x – 8



Quantity B is greater than Quantity A.

Hence the answer is B.
