C) 54 Kg | D) 63 Kg |

Answer: D) 63 Kg

Explanation:

Explanation:

By the rule of alligation:

C.P. of 1 kg sugar of 1st kind C.P. of 1 kg sugar of 2nd kind

Therefore, Ratio of quantities of 1st and 2nd kind = 14 : 6 = 7 : 3.

Let *x* kg of sugar of 1st kind be mixed with 27 kg of 2nd kind.

Then, 7 : 3 = *x* : 27 or *x* = (7 x 27 / 3) = 63 kg.
