## Alligation and Mixture Aptitude Test Paper 11) A 60 liter mixture of milk and water contains 10% water. How much water must be added to make water 20% in the mixture? - 8 liters
- 7.5 liters
- 7 liters
- 6.5 liters
The Correct answer is (B)
The mixture has 10% water, so the milk would be 90% of 60 liters. Milk = * 60 = 54 liters ∴Water = 60 - 54 = 6 liters Let water to be added = x liters Now, 6+x = 1 60+x 5 30 + 5x = 60+x 30 - 60 = x - 5x - 30 = - 4x x = 2) An alloy contains14 parts of tin and 100 parts of copper. What is the percentage of tin in the alloy ? - 12.3%
- 13%
- 11.5%
- 11%
The Correct answer is (A)
In 114 parts of alloy, tin = 14 parts ∴Percentage of tin =14 ∗100=12.3%114 3) A 20 liter mixture contains 30% alcohol and 70% water. If 5 liters of water is added to the mixture, what will be the percentage of alcohol in the new mixture ? - 22%
- 23%
- 24%
- 25%
The Correct answer is (C)
Initially, the mixture contains 30% alcohol = And, 70% of water = After adding 5 liters of water, the mixture contains (14+5) 19 liters of water and 6 liters of alcohol. ∴Percentage of alcohol =6 ∗100=24% 25 4) In what ratio water must be mixed with milk costing Rs. 48 per liter to get a mixture worth Rs. 32 per liter ? - 2:3

The Correct answer is (C)
Total cost price of (60+90)150 kg of mixture = (60*30+90*40) = 1800+3600 = Rs. 5400 Cost Price per kg of mixture = Now, Required gain = 20% ∴Required selling price per kg of mixture =120 ∗36 = Rs. 43.2 per kg100 Alligation and Mixture Aptitude Test Paper 2 Alligation and Mixture Concepts |
