I think the question should have the Quantity 'A' asking for the ratio between QR/RS or QR/QT

In this case the Each rectangle inside the bigger rectangle has a width 'x'( Assume)

Now QR is nothing but the combination of 3 horizontally placed rectangles whose side length is the addition of the widths of those rectangles

QR = x+x+x = 3x ( From this ,the length of each of the rectangle is 3x - we can Conclude this by carefully noticing the 3 Horizontal rectangular widths = one vertically lying rectangular length)

Now coming to the denominator : If we need to Find out RS or QT we can notice the side is the combination of two rectangles which is Length of one Horizontal rect + width of vertical rect

So RS = x + 3x = 4x

Finally we get the ration as 3x/4x and we can cancel 'x' in numerator and denominator which is left with a ration of 3/4 and it is equal to quantity B

Thank you :)

Correct me in case of any mistakes

Question is asking about QS= ??

A) Quantity A is greater.
B) Quantity B is greater.
C) The two quantities are equal.
D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.



Now we can see from the figure that \(QR = 3 \times w\) and RS is \(RS= l+w\)


Now \(QS =\sqrt{QR^2 + RS^2}=\sqrt{(l+w)^2 + (3w)^2}\)

So ratio \(QR:QS=3w:\sqrt{(l+w)^2 + (3w)^2}=3w:\sqrt{(4w)^2 + (3w)^2}= \frac{3}{5}\).


Hence option B is correct.

We can see from the figure that QR =3w . Also, it is clear that L=3w since ST = L = QR .

Now, QS = Sq.root(QR^2 + RS^2) = Sq.root[(L+w)^2 + (3w)^2] = Sq.root[(3w+w)^2 + (3w)^2] = Sq.root(25w^2) = 5w.

Therefore , QR/QS = 3w/5w = 3/5 . Given option B i.e. 3/4 is greater than 3/5. Answer is B.
