C.

X----W----Y
2.4--5.6---8
0---(-2)--(-2)
2.4--3.6---6
0.6--1.4---2
3.0--5.0---8

x=300/8 = 37.5%

C. 37.5.

Original 8kg had 2.4X and 5.6Water. 2kg of water evaporated and we have the solution now having 2.4X and 3.6W

2Kg willhave 0.6X and 1.4Water and is added to the above changed solution.

We will then have New Y = 2.4+0.6 = 3 of X and 3.6 + 1.4 = 5 of Water.

So X in NewY = 3/8*100 = 37.5%.
