## 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

1.7 kgs. Choice (2)

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