Question

Two vessels A and B contain 62.5% and 87.5% of milk respectively. If 2 litres from vessel A is mixed with 4 litres from vessel B, the ratio of milk and water in the resulting mixture is:


  1. 16:5

  2. None of these

  3. 16:7

  4. 19:5

  5. 14:5


Solution

The correct option is D

19:5


Quantity of milk in vessel A = 62.5100×2 = 54 litres

Quantity of milk in vessel B = 87.5100×4=72 litres

Quantity of milk in the mixture formed = 54+72=194=4.75litres

As 6 litres of mixture is formed, ratio of milk and water in the mixture formed = 4.75 : 1.25 = 19 : 5.
