D)The relationship cannot be determined from the information given



Let x = Melissa's age

Myra is 5 years older than Melissa
So, x + 5 = Myra's age

Jonathan is 2 years older than Melissa
so, x + 2 = Jonathon's age

Jim is 3 years older than Jonathan.
x + 2 = Jonathon's age
So, (x + 2) + 3 = Jim's age
Simplify: x + 5 = Jim's age

We get:
Quantity A: x + 5
Quantity B: x + 5

Answer: C

Cheers,
Brent
