17 quarts

#### Explanation:

In order to calculate the total volume of punch Melonie made, we'll need to convert the volume so that they are all in the same unit.

1 gallon = 4 quart

$\text{volume of orange juice" = "2.5 gallons" xx ("4 quart")/("1 gallon")="10 quarts}$

$\text{Volume of cranberry juice" = "4 quarts}$

$\text{Volume of apple juice" = "3 quarts}$

Volume of punch = total volume of fruit juices = 10 + 4 + 3 = 17 quarts
