Hi Thomas.
The short answer is yes.
If we parse the sentence syntactically, "the quotient (of 50 and a number) is 2." So the quotient is 2. In english, the phrase "50 and a number" is ambiguous because both sides are equal, but in conventional use in mathematics, the dividend is mentioned before the divisor. The question is a bit ambiguous  a better rephrasing would be "the quotient of 50 over a number is 2."
So the question is asking "50 divided by what equals 2?"
