Let the keg be a 150 Litre keg At 5 pm.. There are 75 litres At 6:30 pm there are 50 litres. So, consumption rate is 25 litres per 1.5 hours. So it will take 3 hours to finish 50 litres at this rate. During happy hour it sells 3 times faster. So, rate = 1 hour per 50 litres. So, keg becomes empty at 6:30 + 1 hour = 7:30 pm Answer is A.

Answer is A. Macfauz, Thanks for the solution. I acutally spent close to 3 minutes on this Q during the exam. I just wanted to understand about how you picked numbers. Did you start with 150 lts itself or revised later. I do consider numbers based on LCM prinicple but some how goof up in pressure situation. Any pointers ....

I'd choose a number which is a multiple of both 2 and 3: we have 1/2 and 2/3 mentioned in the stem. Say the capacity is 6 liters: At 5 pm. 3 liters are left. At 6:30 pm 2 liters are left. Regular consumption 1 liter in 1.5 hours. Tripled consumption 3 liters in 1.5 hours, or 3/1.5=2 liters per hour. At 6:30 pm, when the happy hour starts, 2 liters are left, hence at the rate of 2 liters per hour 1 "happy" hour is needed to empty the keg. Answer: E. Hope it helps.

if 1/2 was at 5pm and 1/3 at 6:30, that means that in 90 minutes, the clients consumed 1/6 of the beer. now, since 1/6 is consumed in 1.5 hours, let's find how much is consumed in 1 hour: 1/6 * 2/3 = 1/9 is consumed in 1 hour. since the sales triple during the happy hour, the sales of the beer would be 1/9 * 3 or 3/9 or 1/3.
Now, we know that at 6:30 there is left only 1/3 of the beer. between 6:30 and 7:30 is consumed 1/3 of the total beer. It must be true that at 7:30 there will be no beer left.
the same is true if we pick numbers: suppose there are 120 liters of beer in total 60 was at 5pm, and 40 was at 6:30 pm ok, so 20 liters were consumed during 1.5 hours. multiply 20 by 2/3 to see how much during 1 hour is consumed > 40/3. during the happy hour, the sales/consumption triples to 40/3*3 or 40 liters. since we were left with 40 liters at 6:30, and since 40 liters is consumed during the happy hour, 0 liters would be left at 7:30.

Your post also says that 1 happy hour is sufficient to empty the keg, but you wrote Answer E. Is it by mistake? Thanks for your posts. They are really helpful.  +1 Kudos if you like the post
