I do not know why this question turned into tricky when instead it is very simple as question.
For example the explanation provided above, aside mine tells us
Quote:
Remember: Remainder is always an integer and is always less than the divisor. Thus.
Quantity A: Product of two odds is always odd. Thus odd/2 will always yield remainder of 1. Hence Quantity A = 1.
Quantity B: since x > y, this means that Quantity B will always be larger than 1.
Hence Quantity B is greater.
This is conceptually, using just theory.
Or you can pick numbers
The result will be the same
You also miss the point of the question: the two quantities ask you
QA the remainder
QB the dividend, the result of the division. In your case: 9/3=3 and the remainder is 0. However in QB what you are looking for is the result of the division , the dividend which is 3
In fact. in QB x/y is simply a division. we do not care of the remainder. It is just a division.
All the mistakes above are made because people carrying the information we want is QA towards QB, and this is WRONG
