Hi,

this can't be a real DS question, since the question stem provides everything you need to answer the question (and statement (1) actually contradicts the info in the stem).

If 10% evaporates every day, then the ratio of "yesterday" to "today" will always be 100%:90% = 10:9.

After two days there will be 81% of the water left; statement (1) says that there will only be 80% left.
