This lesson is part of a series of practice test questions for the quantitative reasoning section of the GRE revised General Test.

To answer Quantitative Comparison Questions, you need to compare two quantities and then choose the statement from a list that most accurately describes the comparison.

Look at the following directions for the Quantitative Comparison Questions.

Directions: Compare Quantity A and Quantity B, using additional information centered above the two quantities if such information is given, and select one of the following four answer choices:

(A) Quantity A is greater.

(B) Quantity B is greater.

(C) The two quantities are equal.

(D) The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Example 1:

0 < a < b < c < 1

Quantity A: \(\frac{{ab}}{c}\)

Quantity B: 1
Example 2:

0 < abc < 1

Quantity A: \(\frac{{ab}}{c}\)

Quantity B: 1

Example 3:

-3x + 6y = 5

-2x + 5y = -1

Quantity A: x - y

Quantity B: -5
Example 4:

0 < -10

\(\frac{x}{y} = \frac{2}{7}\)

Quantity A: y - x

Quantity B: -25

Example 5:

x > 0 and x ≠ 1

Quantity A: \(\frac{{\left( {x + 3} \right)\left( {x - 1} \right)}}{{{x^2} - x}}\)

Quantity B: 1
