Hi;I soon as I get it, I will post it.

Please state the calculation

I agree it is 1 /3 by calculation.

Alligation is a method of solving mixture ques.

What is Allegation?

Got It mate Alligation use allegation 1/3 is correct answerAnd ques is exactly quoted

I guess they want fraction of milk Sorry mate

Okay, I thought you just needed some fraction help but you are asking for a mixture problem. I will try and solve that.

yes mate ;

Did you copy the question exactly?

yeah mate , I have understood that but the answer given is 1/3

That is right. Take 1 part of the milk ( there are 3 ) and replace it with water. You now have 2 parts milk and 2 parts water. It is 50:50 now.But 1 part of the milk is only 1 / 4 of the 4 parts of the mixture. So we need to replace 1 part of the mixture which is 1 / 4 of the mixture.

yeah so milk is 3/4 part of it and water is 1/4 part
