Once we read the question, we can see that Melissa is the youngest.
So, let's let x = Melissa's age

Jonathon is 2 years older than Melissa
If x = Melissa's age, then...
x + 2 = Jonathon's age

Myra is S years older than Melissa.
If x = Melissa's age, then...
x + 5 = Myra's age

Jim is 3 years older than Jonathon.
If x + 2 = Jonathon's age, then...
x + 2 + 3 = Jim's age
Simplify to get: x + 5 = Jim's age

So, we get:
Quantity A: x + 5
Quantity B: x + 5

Answer: C

Cheers,
Brent
