Hi Sandy, please can you provide the working solution for this? I assume Qty A is 9/16 of C which should invariably be lesser than 4/3 of C (Qty B). Thank you

This post received KUDOS
plug in 0 in both statements. Then quantity A will be equal to quantity B. since B is not always greater than A, we should choose D.
btw I also thought that 4/3(c) must be greater than 9/16(c), I completely forgot about 0 being an integer too hahaha
