Show Answer
Correct Answer: 3
Let the ratio of A and B in drum 2 be x : 1
Applying alligation,
$\frac{13}{20}-\frac{x}{x+1}=\frac{3}{4}=>\frac{13}{20}-\frac{x}{x+1}=\frac{3}{4} \times \frac{72-65}{100}=\frac{21}{400}$
$=>\frac{x}{25}-\frac{13}{20}=\frac{13}{20}-\frac{21}{400}=\frac{239}{400}$
$=>400 x=239 x+239$
$x=239 / 161$
Required ratio is 239 : 161.
