Don't think is a mixture question. It's more a ratio question.

Flour: Sugar: Milk: Total
Cups: 8 : 4 : 12 : 24
Ratio: 2x: x : 3x : 6x
This produces 36 cupcakes, and we require 12/24 Milk for this mix.

If we want to make 1/4 th of the cupcakes i.e. 9 cupcakes, then we need 1/4th the total number of cups.

1/4 *24 = 6

We then need to maintain the same proportions (proportions) of each part.
Flour: Sugar: Milk: Total
Cups: 2 : 1 : 3 : 6

Milk = (12/24)*6 = 3
Sugar = 4/24 *6 = 1/6*6 = 1
Flour = 8/24*6 = 1/3 *6 = 2

I added the others for reference

Since 9 cupcakes is 1/4 of 36, for 9 cupcakes Maria would need 1/4 of the 12 cups of milk, or 3 cups of milk.

Answer: B
