### Explanatory Answer

##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Ratio, Mixtures and Averages: When we mix two mixtures in a particular ratio, we get a third mixture. Given the third mixture how does one find the ratio in which they were mixed.

Remember price will be in top of the cross, quantity will be in bottom of the cross and the final average in the middle.
Therefore, $$frac{$x-10$}{2}$ = $\frac{6}{3}\\$ => 3x – 30 = 12 => x = $\frac{42}{3}\\$ = 14 The question is "Find the price of the costlier wheat." ##### Hence, the answer is "Rs 14/kg". Choice B is the correct answer. ###### Best CAT Online Coaching Try upto 40 hours for free Learn from the best! ###### Already have an Account? ###### CAT Coaching in ChennaiCAT 2021Enroll at 49,000/- 44,000/- Online Classroom Batches Starting Now! ###### Best CAT Coaching in Chennai Introductory offer of 5000/- Attend a Demo Class ###### Best Indore IPM & Rohtak IPM CoachingSignup and sample 9 full classes for free.
