Both are equally sweet

Your Answer
D

Cannot be determined


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.
