Option B

Let the capacity of container Y be 100 litres. It is 1/4 full i.e., 25 litres
Capacity of X is 50 litres. it if half full i.e 25 litres.

When contents of X is poured into Y the new volume of Y is 25+25=50 litres.

Hence container Y is 50% full

Container Y is 1/4 full of water and Container X, which has half the capacity of container Y, is 1/2 full. If all the water in Container X is poured into Container Y then Container Y will be filled to what percent of its capacity?

A. 100%
B. 50%
C. 30%
D. 25%
E. 12.5%


Let’s say that container Y has a capacity of 8 gallons, and so container X will have a capacity of 4 gallons.

Thus, container Y has 1/4 x 8 = 2 gallons and container X has 1/2 x 4 = 2 gallons.

If X is poured into Y, Y is filled to 2 + 2 = 4 gallons or 4/8 = 1/2 = 50% of its capacity.

Answer:B
