Let x be litres and d be cost

Eq 1 : xd = 60
Eq 2 : (x+1)(d-30) =60

Solving for x using Eq 1 and 2 : X =4;

You can use the options here:

Note that the total cost must remain \$60. Options give the number of litres so 60 has to be divisible by it.
When the number of its becomes 1 extra, 60 should again be divisible by it.

Check (A): 5 is divisible by 60 and so is 6.
5*12 = 60, but 6*9 = 54

Check (B): 4 is divisible by 60 and so is 5
4*15 = 60, and 5*12 = 60 too
Matches
