(1) we have no info on which ingredient is in larger quantity.
insuff

(2) no info on their ratio/percentage....insuff

Combining we know ,one ingredient is twice of another(from (1)) and the ingredient which is twice of another(water) is alcohol
thus alcohol= 4 ounce , water = 2ounce
ratio = 2/4 = 1/2
suff

Ans C
