There are two sets 18G1 gallons and 10G2 gallons details given.
18 gallons covering 270 miles
Then 1 G1 is used to cover 15 miles.
Now for 10 G2 covering 270 miles.
then 1 G2 is used to cover 27 miles.
There must 27 - 15 = 12 miles per gallon increment is needed for 10 gallons to improve the mileage to cover 270 miles.
IMO C is correct answer.
OA please...will correct if I missed anything..
