Solution

## The correct option is A 36Fraction 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
