Let the bucket be of $$5l$$, so filled volume $$=3l$$

size of tub $$=8*5l=40l$$

therefore filled %$$=\frac{3}{40}*100=7.5$$%

Let the capacity of the bucket be 5 units

The bucket is filled 3 units

Capacity of the tub is 40 units

Quote:

3 units is filled out of 40 units , ie $$\frac{3}{40}*100$$ = 7.50 %, answer will be (D)
