A. 1 /6

B. 1/3

C. 1/ 2

D. 2 /3

E. 3/ 2

Let the capacity of the two jars be 100 units each.

Now, the capacity of the bucket=3*100=300 unit

Amount of liquid poured into the bucket=\(\frac{1}{2}(100+100)=100\) unit=Amount of liquid in the bucket

The portion of the bucket that is now full=\(\frac{100}{300}=\frac{1}{3}\)

Ans. (B)
