Explanation

In the question, you are given that x = 7n + 2 and y = 6n + 3. Substituting the given expressions for x and y in Quantity A, you get x + y = 13n + 5.

Using trial and error, you can compare Quantity A, the ones digit of 13n + 5, and Quantity B, 5, by plugging in a few values for the positive integer n.

If n = 1, then x + y = 18 and the ones digit is 8, which is greater than 5. So in this case Quantity A is greater than Quantity B.
If n = 2, then x + y = 31 and the ones digit is 1, which is less than 5. So in this case Quantity B is greater than Quantity A.

Since in one case Quantity A is greater than Quantity B, and in the other case Quantity B is greater than Quantity A, you can conclude that the correct answer is Choice D.

x + y = 13n + 5.

if n = 10 then the unit digit will be 5 and if n=1 the unit digit will be 8

So the answer is D

Why did they just word this "the ones"? I had no idea what exactly it was asking for.

I think you are perfectly right. The "ones" has little sense even to me.

The right wording should be "the unit digit"

improper wording leads to error as well as wastage of time. So, kindly use precise words
