Explanation


If Lionel’s age is 6 years and Maria’s age is 10 years, then Quantity A is greater, but if Lionel’s age is 4 years and Maria’s age is 10 years, then Quantity B is greater. Thus, the relationship cannot be determined. The correct answer is Choice D, the relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

KUDOS
fact is : L<M
to find the relation between 2L and M.
lets plug in few values, when L=2 AND M=4 (L<M)==> 2L=M
again L=3 and M=4 (L<M)===> 2L>M


here the relation varies, SO ans is D.

Let's test some possible cases

case i: Since Lionel is younger than Maria, it COULD be the case that Lionel is 4 and Maria is 5
We get:
QUANTITY A: Twice Lionel’s age = 2 x 4 = 8
QUANTITY B: Maria's age = 5
In this case, Quantity A is greater

case ii: Since Lionel is younger than Maria, it COULD be the case that Lionel is 4 and Maria is 50
We get:
QUANTITY A: Twice Lionel’s age = 2 x 4 = 8
QUANTITY B: Maria's age = 50
In this case, Quantity B is greater

Answer: B

Cheers,
Brent
