The ratio 5:3 represents 16 liters of a mixture containing milk and water. If 4 liters of water is added and 4 liters of milk is extracted from the mixture, then the ratio of the mixture will be:

**(A)** 7:3

**(B)** 5:6

**(C)** 2:3

**(D)** None of these

**Answer:** **(D)** **Explanation:** Amount of Milk in 16 litres of mixture: (5/8) x 16 = 10 litres

Amount of Water in 16 litres of mixture: 16-10 = 6 litres

If we add 4 litres of water and extract 4 litres of milk, the total volume remains the same.

Amount of Milk in 16 litres of new mixture: = 10 – 4 = 6 litres

Amount of Water in 16 litres of new mixture: = 6 + 4 = 10 litres

So, the new ratio becomes 3:5.
