Although the correct answer might be immediately obvious, let's apply the technique of matching operations.

Given:
Quantity A: 10
Quantity B: 11 + x

Subtract 11 from both quantities to get:
Given:
Quantity A: -1
Quantity B: x

Since we aren't given ANY information about the value of x, it COULD be that x = 1, in which case quantity B is greater.
Or it COULD be that x = -2, in which case quantity A is greater.
Or it COULD be that x = -1, in which case quantity A and quantity B are EQUAL.

Answer: D
