If you haven't installed anything else in between and nothing was removed
(as can be the case if something is obsoleted) only package A will be
removed. B and C will remain installed.

If other stuff was installed, updated or removed in between then you need to
take those other packages into account when trying to figure out what will
get removed as dependencies.
