If I am told to plot quantity "a" against quantity "b" do I put "a" on the y-axis and "b" on the x-axis?

I would have said put "a" on the X-axis and "b" on the y-axis.
Logic dictates that X coordinates are before that of the B coordinates

Yes, by convention, "a" would be on the y-axis and "b" on the x-axis. The same would apply if you were asked to plot "a" vs "b".

Alternatively, you could remember that the independent variable goes on the x-axis and the dependent variable on the y-axis.
