Q:

# The diluted wine contains only 8 liters of wine and the rest is water. A new mixture whose concentration is 30%, is to be  formed by replacing wine. How many liters of mixture shall be replaced with pure wine if there was initially 32 liters of water in the mixture ?

 A) 4 B) 5 C) 8 D) None of these

Explanation:

Wine                         Water

8L                              32L

1                :               4

20 %                           80% (original ratio)

30 %                           70% (required ratio)

In  ths case, the percentage of water being reduced when the mixture is being replaced with wine.

so the ratio of left quantity to the initial quantity is 7:8

Therefore , $78=1-K40$

=> K = 5 Lit
