Let T = the total number of marbles in the jar

In a jar, 60% of the marbles are red and the rest are green.
Number of red marbles = 60% of T = 0.6T
Number of green marbles = 40% of T = 0.4T

QUANTITY A: 40% of the RED marbles in the jar = 40% of 0.6T = (0.4)(0.6T) = 0.24T
QUANTITY B: 60% of the GREEN marbles in the jar = 60% of 0.4T = (0.6)(0.4T) = 0.24T

Answer: C

Cheers,
Brent

Red marbles are 0.6 of total no. of marbles. It follows that
Green marbles are 0.4 of total no. of marbles.
If the no. of marbles in the jar are x then,

Qty A = 0.6*0.4*x
Qty B = 0.4*0.6*x

Both are same so option C
