Hi Elizabeth;
A...(20 oz)/(\$1.20)=(17 oz)/(\$1.00)
B...(25 oz)/(\$2.00)=(12.5 oz)/(\$1.00)
B...(36 oz)/(\$2.88)=(12.5 oz)/(\$1.00)
B...(50 oz)/(\$4.00)=(12.5 oz)/(\$1.00)
Brand A offers the most ounces-per-dollar.
Brand A is the better deal.

Elizabeth:

The per unit cost  per ounce is as follows:

A. \$1.20/20 oz  =  \$0.06/oz.
B. \$2.00/25 oz  =  \$0.08/oz.
B2 \$2.88/36 oz =  \$0.08/oz.
B3 \$4.00/50 oz. = \$0.08/oz.

Brand A has a cost of 6 cent per ounce while Brand B cost 8 cents per ounce. The difference is 2 cents per ounce less for Brand A.
