Solution

## The correct option is C 17.66%The bottle will be filled 10% in the first hour. In the next hour, 8% of it. i.e. 10 ×(8100)=0.8% of the bottle is emptied. The remaining water after the second hour is 9.2%. Again, in the third hour 10% bottle is filled, it becomes 19.2%. Now, Again 8% of it. i.e 19.2 ×(8100)=1.536% is emptied in the fourth hour so the remaining water is 19.2−1.536=17.66%
