Solution

## The correct option is C 95.5 mlLet mass of solution be 100 gm​Therefore amount of solute in it = 95.6 gmVolume of solution = massdensity = 1001.84 = 54.3478 mlVolume = 1 L =1000 ml Density = 1.31 g/mlMass of solution = 1310 gMass % of solute = 40 %Let mass of solute in it be X gMass % = massofsolutemassofsolution×100 40 = X1300×100 X = 40×1310 = 524 gmFor solution to make 50 % mass percent and density 1.40 g/mlVolume of solution =1400 mlAmount of solute present should be,Y gm = 50×1400100 = 700 g​Thus Amount of solute needed to be added to the 40 % to make it 50% by mass =700-524 = 176 gVolume of H2SO4 of density 1.84 g/ml required to be added to 40 % = massdensity = 1761.84 =95.6521 mlso the answer is C
