(2) If 5 blue balls are taken out of the bag, the bag will contain 4 red balls for every blue ball

Red Ball : X & Blue Ball = Y
From statement 1 : x-5 = 1.5(y) - We can't solve for x & y

From statement 2: x = 4 (y-5) - We can't solve for x & y

1 & 2
4y - 20 - 5 = 1.5y
2.5y = 25
y = 10 & x = 20

Ans - C
