Maximum value of Quantity A will be obtained if we put least possible value of x-y in denominator. That will be minimum value of x and maximum of y.
Hence, Choice C is correct.

Yes, I have C as well. Because of the negative in x-y, plug in the least value of x (=9) with the greatest value of y (=8).
