Question

When processing flower - nectar into honeybees' extract, a considerable amount of water gets reduced. How much flower - nectar must be processed to yield 1kg of honey, if nectar contains 50% water, and the honey obtained from this nectar contains 15% water?
  1. 1.5 kgs
  2. 1.7 kgs
  3. 3.33 kgs
  4. None of these

Correct Answer

1.7 kgs. Choice (2)

Explanatory Answers

Flower-nectar contains 50% of non-water part.
In honey this non-water part constitutes 85% (100-15).

Therefore, 0.5 X Amount of flower-nectar = 0.85 X Amount of honey = 0.85 X 1 kg

Therefore, amount of flower-nectar needed = (0.85/0.5) * 1kg = 1.7 kg.

Correct Answer is Choice (2)
