Question 35: A vessel is full of a mixture of methanol and ethanol in which there is 20% ethanol. 10 litres of mixture are drawn off and filled with methanol. If the ethanol is now 15%, what is the capacity of the vessel?
Therefore, Mixture : Methanol = 3 : 1
So, for 10 litres of methanol, 30 l of Mixture is needed. So, total capacity = (30 + 10) l = 40 l
The question is "what is the capacity of the vessel?"
Choice A is the correct answer.
