c) 157:53

d) 5:2

Question 7: In a laboratory, two bottles contain mixture of acid and water in the ratio 2 : 5 in the first bottle and 7 : 3 in the second. The ratio in which the contents of these two bottles be mixed such that the new mixture has acid and water in the ratio 2:3 is

c) 30 litres

d) 20 litres

Question 9: A mixture contains milk and water in the ratio (by volume)5 : 3 and another mixture, of the same volume as that of the former, contains water and milk in the ratio (by volume)1 : 3. In what ratio, two mixtures be mixed in order to obtain a new mixture consisting of milk and water in the ratio (by volume) 7 : 3 ?

a) 2 : 3

b) 3 : 4

c) 5 : 6

d) 3 : 2

Question 10: In 2 kg mixture of copper and aluminum, 30% is copper. How much aluminum powder should be added to the mixture so that the proportion of the copper becomes 20%?

a) 1000 gms

b) 800 gms

c) 1200 gms

d) 900 gms

Using, $\frac{M_1D_1}{W_1}$ $=\frac{M_2D_2}{W_2}$, where $M$ is number of men, $D$ is number of days and $W$ is work done.

Let in $x$ days, 30 persons will consume 48 kg of wheat.

According to ques,

=> $\frac{42\times15}{144}=\frac{30\times x}{48}$

=> $\frac{7\times5}{8}=\frac{5x}{8}$

=> $x=7$

$\therefore$ 30 persons will consume 48 kg of wheat in 7 days.

=> Ans – (B)

Let CP of petrol = $Rs.$ $100$

=> CP of kerosene = $\frac{40}{100}\times100=Rs.$ $40$

Now, 20% of kerosene is added, thus cost price of 1 litre petrol and 200 ml kerosene = $(100+8)=Rs.$ $108$

Selling price = $(100+20)=Rs.$ $120$

$\therefore$ Profit % = $\frac{(120-108)}{108}\times100$

= $\frac{100}{9}=11.11\%$

=> Ans – (A)

In first container quantity of milk relative to water is $\frac{5}{3} \times100$ = 166.65%
In second container quantity of milk relative to water is $\frac{2}{1} \times100$ = 200%
In third container quantity of milk relative to water is $\frac{2}{1} \times100$ = 150%
In fourth container quantity of milk relative to water is $\frac{7}{4} \times100$ = 175%
hence third container has least ratio

Let’s say amounts in first vessel are 3x and 4x
in second vessel = 5y and 3y
So 7x = 8y (given)   (eq. (1))
Pouring them together , new amounts will be 3x+5y and 4x+3y
so new ratio will be $\frac{3x+5y}{4x+3y}$  (eq. 2)
putting ratio of x and y from eq. (1) in eq. (2) and solving we will get new ratio as 59:53

As per the question,
Container A contains 2 liter of milk and 1 liter juice
And container B contains 4 liter of milk and 5 liter of juice
Now, Let both container have equal quantity which is 9 liter
So, in the first mixture, 6 liter of milk and 3 liter of juice should be there.
When both will be mixed then total quantity will be 18 liter
out of which 10 liter of milk and 8 liter of juice will be in container.
Hence the required ratio will be 10:8
or 5:4 will be milk and juice in the container.

ratio of acid and water in the first bottle = 2 : 5

acid in the first bottle = $\frac{2}{7}$

ratio of acid and water in the second bottle = 7 : 3

acid in the second bottle = $\frac{7}{10}$

ratio of acid and water in the new mixture = 2 : 3

acid of new mixture = $\frac{2}{5}$

using alligation method

ratio in which the contents of these two bottles be mixed = $\frac{3}{10} : \frac{4}{35}$

= 21 : 8
