C)The two quantities are equal.
D)The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Explanation::

QTY A : The total interest earned on d dollars invested for 3 months at 11 percent simple annual interest =$$d * \frac{3}{12} * \frac{11}{100}$$ =$$d * \frac{1}{4} * \frac{11}{100}$$ = $$\frac{11}{4} * \frac{d}{100}$$ (time is calculated in terms of years)

Hence QTY A < QTY B

Option B
