A quart is used to measure the volume of something, where as a pound is a unit of weight so it is not possible to convert between the two, because they refer to completely different concepts in measurement. There are 16 ounces (oz) to a pound and 32 fluid ounces (fl. Oz.) in a quart, and while you could determine how many pounds in weight a quart of a specific item would be, such as a barrel of beer for instance, the measurement would vary on a case-by-case basis. In the case of the barrel of beer, after weighing it, the weight of the beer barrel itself would need to be subtracted to give the actual weight measurement of the volume of beer itself. You could then work out how many quarts per pound of beer.

It is also possible the question refers to the weight measurement of a quart, as in an abbreviation of the term ‘quarter of an ounce’ a unit of measurement used in certain social circles, which we won't go into here. If this is the question that is being posed then the answer would be one-sixteenth of a pound, being that there are 16 oz to one pound.
