A 150 B 200 C 300 D 100 E 120 The ratio of milk and water in a mixture is 2:1, Let milk = 2 liters and water = 1 liter. Some quantity of water is added to the mixture to make the ratio of milk and water in the new mixture 1:2. Since the resulting amount of water must be double the original 2 liters of milk, the resulting amount of water = 4 liters. The quantity of water added to the original mixture is what percent of the quantity of water in the original mixture? Since the water increases from 1 liter to 4 liters, the amount of added water = 4-1 = 3 liters. (added water)/(original water) * 100 = (3/1) * 100 = 300%, The correct answer is C. _________________ Mitch Hunt Private Tutor for the GMAT and GRE GMATGuruNY@gmail.com If you find one of my posts helpful, please take a moment to click on the "UPVOTE" icon.

Since the amount of milk doesnâ€™t change, we must add 3 gallons of water into the mixture to make the ratio of milk and water to 1 : 2 (since now we would have 2 gallons of milk and 4 gallons of water). Therefore, the amount of water (3 gallons) added is 300% of the amount of water (1 gallon) in the original mixture.
