Since we have no information about Maria's WEIGHT there are infinitely-many possibilities.

For example, Maria COULD weigh 100,000 pounds (if, for example, Maria were a whale), in which case, Quantity A = 100,002
Here, Quantity A is greater than Quantity B

Maria COULD weigh 1 pound (if, for example, Maria were a hamster), in which case, Quantity A = 3
Here, Quantity B is greater than Quantity A

Answer: D

Cheers,
Brent
