Punch is made of two parts of soda and three of ice cream. So, we just have to multiply the parts of sugar (A) and citric acid (B) by two for soda and three for ice cream and sum them.

In other words, sugar is punch is 2*4 + 3*3 = 17, while citric acid in punch is 2*5 + 2*3 = 16. Thus, quantity A is greater!
