Solution

The correct option is A Chef A Total weight of A's dish = 800 g Fraction of sugar in dish A =300800=38 Total weight of B's dish = 600 g Fraction of sugar in dish B =200600=26=13 To compare 38 and 13, make them into like fractions. LCM of 8 and 3 =24. 3×38×3=924 1×83×8=824 ∴ 924>824 i.e., 38>13 So, Chef A's dish is sweeter than Chef B's dish.
