Somebody to suggest a way to solve this problem?


Let weight of jar filled with beans = 100 g
Weight of jar = 20 g
Weight of coffee beans = 80 g
Weight of jar and remaining beans = 60 g
Weight of remaining beans = 40 g

Fraction remaining = 40/80 = 1/2

Answer is D.

Kudos Please... If my post helped.
