GIVEN: The remainder when 2x is divided by 4 is 0
So, it could be the case that 2x = 4, or 2x = 8, or 2x = 12, or 2x = 16, or 2x = 20, or......etc
Solve each equation for x to see that x could have the following values: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, ....etc

Let's test some possible values of x

case i: x = 2
We get:
Quantity A: The remainder when 2 is divided by 4 = 2
Quantity B: 0
In this case, Quantity A is greater

case ii: x = 4
We get:
Quantity A: The remainder when 4 is divided by 4 = 0
Quantity B: 0
In this case, the quantities are equal

Cheers,
Brent
