A) the mixture will have 650/15=43,3 degrees temperature.
The equation is (X*43,3)/(X+50)+50*25/(X+50)=40 and we can find how many ml of the tea is added
B) We can find the temperature of the added mixture and from there the amount of tea

Stem: 60T+10W+50*25 = (T+W+50)*40

St1: T = 2W. We can solve two equations for T and W. We get T = 50ml and W = 25ml: SUFF

St2: T + W + 50 = 300 i.e T+W = 250. We can solve two equations for T and W. We get T = 199 and W = 51: SUFF

But generally we don't get different answers in GMAT. Is my solution correct or not???

We both made a mistake; in (1), T=150 and W= 75, total volume is 275mL, not 300 as I orginally stated. Q has been corrected, thanks!
