I dont know if you need to know what a quart is for this problem. Adding the quarts need to fill all the bottles

1/2 + 5/6+ 1/2 + 1/4 = 25/12

Obviously I did something wrong!!

Don't worry. In the real exam, if such a conversion is required to answer the question then certainly it will be provided with the question.

I got 25/12 as well, and dont worry about the units as ps_dahiya mentioned, it will be clarified if asked. in this problem though, it seems irrelevant.

Let x be the capacity of each quart bottle

Hence

Amount of quart need to feel them completely = 4x - (x/2+x/6+x/2+3x/4)
= 4x - 23x/12
= 25x/12

hence required is 25/12
