D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.


Given: 3x – 9y < 12
Divide both sides by 3 to get: x - 3y < 4
Since 4 < 6, we can write: x - 3y < 4 < 6

So, we can conclude that x - 3y < 6

So, the correct answer is A

Is possible to rewrite the right side to 3(x-3y), then is easy to know that quantity A is greater.
