How many kiloliters of water are in a reservoir?

1. If the reservoir were filled to capacity, there would be 430 more kiloliters in the reservoir.

2. The reservoir is normally maintained at 65% capacity.

Let c be the capacity, x be the number of kl in the reservoir
1. c-430= x ---> two variables one equation---> unsolvable---> insuff
2. x=65%c , the same to 1, insuff

1 and 2
two variables with two equations ,we get c=430/.35
--> x=.65c= .65*430/.35

If C is not OA, extremely weird :?:

Is it has to do with word "normally" in second statement? :)

Bingo! We have no hard numbers to work with in either statements :evil:

OA is E.

Beware of such tricky wording traps.
