B 11/12

C 12/12

D 13/12

E 17/12



Assume the capacity of both jars:

x= 12

y = 24.

Jar x is filled = 4 liters

jar y is filled = 18 liters.

Now we poured the water of jar x into jar y.

now jar y is filled = 18 + 4 = 22 liters.

Required fraction = 22/ 24 = 11/12.

B is the correct answer.

let capacity of x = 12 ; y =24
x is filled 12 * 1/3 = 4 and y is filled 3/4 * 24 = 18
after x is poured to y = 22/24 = 11/12
IMO B
