A mixture contains milk and water in the ratio of 5:1. Adding 5 L of water changes the ratio to 5:2. What was the quantity of milk in the original mixture?
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option B
Milk:Water (Initial Ratio) = 5:1 i.e. 5 parts of milk out of 6 (5 + 1) parts of the mixture
Milk:Water (Final Ratio) = 5:2 i.e. 5 parts of milk out of 7 (5 + 2) parts of the mixMilkture
On comparing, 1 part of the mixture has been added (5 litres of water is added). So, 1 part of the mixture = 5 litres
Quantity of milk in the original mixture = 5 parts i.e. 5*5 = 25 litres
