The most efficient method for any Quantitative Comparison is to approach the information mathematically, so simply complete the algebra for both quantities.

Quantity A: Neel profit = 2 | Neel cost = 4 | Neel percent profit = 2/4 x 100 = 50%

Quantity B: Nick profit = 2 | Nick cost = 6 | Nick percent profit = 2/6 x 100 = 33.33%

Quantity A is greater, so select choice A.
