How does Google Chrome Sync work exactly?

Say I have bookmarks at computer A. I sync them; now they are stored in the cloud. I go to computer B, with a freshly installed Chrome. I sign in, and get the bookmarks from the cloud. Now here comes the tricky bit: I again sync bookmarks from computer A. Now, say, cloud has bookmarks “A2”. Then go to computer B and play the with bookmarks, and, at that moment I have “B2” (previous state was A1.)

Now when I sync, how does Chrome knows whether I want cloud to be synced to A1 state, or want PC B to be synced to “A2” state? Was that confusing?
