For this question, we should keep in mind that a remainder will ALWAYS be smaller than its divisor. Hence, the ans is B.

Or we can also note a rule of remainder question:

If any postive no N is divided by a positive no D when remainder R lies in the range of 0<= R< D.

So in our case, we have a positive no divided by 11 therefore R can be 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 but NOT 11..

hence Quantity B is Bigger than A.
