Too many words for a simple question. Not a good one. Answer is straight E.

Better question about the same concept:
the-ratio-by-volume-of-soap-to-alcohol-to-water-in-a-68933.html
the-ratio-by-volume-of-baking-soda-to-peroxide-to-water-in-133636.html
papayaya-a-popular-soft-drink-contains-only-four-ingredien-135672.html (Master GMAT)

Hope it helps.

We don't have information about the assorted fruits .. So ratio to rest of ingredients cannot be determined ..
