A) 36 Kg B) 42 Kg
C) 54 Kg D) 63 Kg

Answer:   D) 63 Kg



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.
