"For institutions like The Guardian or The Telegraph to protest at the perceived difficulty of such problems does our children a great disservice, and results in the continuing dumbing down of this country."

I agree with you there but I disagree with "one is not required to "derive" anything, but simply solve a rather trivial quadratic equation."

You are not asked to solve the quadratic equation (that might be part B) but to "show that" the quadratic equation represents the puzzle of the sweets.
