This one is from the OG - I read thru the explanation, but still cant seem to figure out why the OA is correct...can someone explain?

The ratio, by volume, of soap to alcohol to water in certain solution is 2:50:100.

If the altered solution will contain 100 cubic centimeters of alcohol, how many cubic centimeters of water will it contain?

A 50
B 200
C 400

Ans E
2:50:100::S:A:W
S:A = doubled, so 2:25
S:W = halved, so 2: 200
S:A:W::2: 25: 200
Given A = 100.
So, W = 800
