B)The quantity in Column B is greater.
C)The two quantities are equal.
D)The relationship cannot be determined from the information given

Let say three lengths are small + medium + long = 35
So, if medium = 15
small + long = 20
and long = 3 x small (given)
so, 4 x small = 20
i.e. small = 5
so, long = 15
the 3 values satisfies the question....and there are no other values because of linearity of the problem, so answer is C
