Solution

The correct option is A 36
Fraction of oil in Bottle 1 = 36
Fraction of oil in Bottle 2 = 59

The multiples of 6 and 9
6: 6, 12, 18, 24...
9: 9, 18, 27, 36...
The common factor of 6 and 9 is 18.
Hence, 36=3 × 36 × 3 =918

and 59=5 × 29 × 2
=818

When two fractions have the same denominator, the fraction which has the bigger numerator has more value.
Since, 9 > 8
918>818
Therefore, 36>49
