Two equally sized jugs full of water are each emptied into two separate unequally sized empty jugs, X and Y. Now, jug X is 1/5 full, while jug Y is 2/3 full. If water is poured from jug X into jug Y until jug Y is filled, what fraction of jug X then contains water?

A. 0
B. 1/15
C. 2/15
D. 1/10
E. 2/10

I have tried solving it using no's...Unable to get the right answer.Can anyone elaborate please?


Hi, can anyone please help to point out where is it mentioned that the water volume in jug X = jug Y.
How can you assume that the water is spread out evenly between jug X and jug Y.



Two equally sized jugs full of water (not X and Y) are poured into.... That means that we had two containers of the same volume poured into other containers of different capacity, altering the ratios.
