A) 4:3 | B) 3:4 |

C) 5:6 | D) 7:9 |

Explanation:

Let the C.P. of spirit be Re. 1 litre.

Spirit in 1 litre mix. of A = 5/7 litre, C.P. of 1 litre mix.

in A = Re. 5/7

Spirit in 1 litre mix. of B = 7/13 litre, C.P. of 1 litre mix.

in B = Re. 7/13

Spirit in 1 litre mix. of C = 8/13 litre, Mean price = Re. 8/13.

By the rule of alligation, we have:

Cost of 1 litre mixture in A Cost of 1 litre mixture in B

Required ratio = 1/13 : 9/91 = 7:9.

A) 2 lit | B) 4 lit |

C) 1 lit | D) 3 lit |

Explanation:

Quantity of fruit juice in the mixture = 90/100 (70) = 63 litres.

After adding water, juice would form 87 1/2% of the mixture.

Hence, if quantity of mixture after adding x liters of water, (87 1/2) / 100 x = 63 => x = 72

Hence 72 - 70 = 2 litres of water must be added.

A) 5 lit | B) 10 lit |

C) 15 lit | D) 20 lit |

Explanation:

Number of liters of water in 150 liters of the mixture = 20% of 150 = 20/100 x 150 = 30 liters.

P liters of water added to the mixture to make water 25% of the new mixture.

Total amount of water becomes (30 + P) and total volume of mixture is (150 + P).

(30 + P) = 25/100 x (150 + P)

120 + 4P = 150 + P => P = 10 liters.

A) 360 ml | B) 320 ml |

C) 310 ml | D) 330 ml |

Explanation:

Here total parts of milk and water in the solution is 6+2 = 8 parts

1part = 640/8 = 80

old mixture contains 6parts of milk and 2 parts of water(6:2).

To get new mixture containing half milk and half water, add 4parts of water to the old mixture then 6:(2+4) to make the ratio same.

i.e, 4 x 80 = 320 ml.

A) 193 : 122 | B) 97 : 102 |

C) 115 : 201 | D) 147 : 185 |

Explanation:

Given the three mixtures ratio as (1:2),(2:3),(3:4)

(1+2),(2+3),(3+4)

Total content = 3,5,7

Given equal quantities of the three mixtures are mixed, then LCM of 3, 5, 7 = 105

105/3 = 35 , 105/5 = 21 , 105/7 = 15

Now, the individual equal quantity ratios are (35x1, 35x2), (21x2, 21x3), (15x3, 15x4)

(35,70), (42,63), (45,60)

So overall mixture ratio of milk and water is

35+42+45 : 70+63+60

122:193

But in the question asked the ratio of water to milk = 193 : 122

A) 80% | B) 70% |

C) 75% | D) 62% |

Explanation:

Water in 60 gm mixture=60 x 75/100 = 45 gm. and Milk = 15 gm.

After adding 15 gm. of water in mixture, total water = 45 + 15 = 60 gm and

weight of a mixture = 60 + 15 = 75 gm.

So % of water = 100 x 60/75 = 80%.
