We can solve this question using matching operations

Given:
Quantity A: y - x
Quantity B: x - y

Add x to both sides to get:
Quantity A: y
Quantity B: 2x - y

Add y to both sides to get:
Quantity A: 2y
Quantity B: 2x

Divide both sides by 2 to get:
Quantity A: y
Quantity B: x

Since we're told that x < y, the correct answer is A
