45 1/2%
72%
66 2/3%
35%
None
Option C
Solution:
Milk : Water 40:60
2:3.
5—-50
2—-?–> 20 l
3—-?—> 30l
Then new ratio 20/ (30+10) = 20/40=1:2.
%ge of water=40/60 *100
=400/6=66 2/3%.
2. In an examination on which full marks were 1000. A got 20% less than B. B got 25% more than C. C got 20% less than D. If A got 400 marks, what percentage of full marks was obtained by D?

=500.
C’s Mark=500*100/125
=400.
D’s Mark=400*100/80
=500.
%ge =500/1000 *100
=50%.

=3.
7. 24 men can complete a piece of work in 10 days and 16 women can complete the same piece of work in 20 days. What is the respective ratio between the amount of work done by 30 men in 1 day and the amount of work done by 20 women in 1 day?
