Proving the answer of (a+b+c)/3 to be both less than and greater than b will help us answer the question

Scenario 1
=========
a=1
b=2
c=3

(a+b+c)/3 = 2

b=2

Implies Quantity A and B are equal.

Scenario 2
=========
a=1
b=2
c=12

(A+b+c)/3 = 15/3= 5

Quantity A > B

Implies Ans - D The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
