There are infinitely many solutions to the equation x + y = 2
Here are two solutions:

#1) x = 0 and y = 2
In this case Quantity B is greater than Quantity A

#2) x = 2 and y = 0
In this case Quantity A is greater than Quantity B

Answer: D

Cheers,

Here are the possible condtions for values of x and y
- x = 1 and y = 1
- x = 2 and y = 0
- x = 0 and y = 2

so from this we can say that we cannot determine the values of x and y from the equation x + y = 2 !

Hence, Answer - Option D
