# A vessel, full of water, weighs 16.5. When the vessel is 1/4 full, it weighs 5.25 Kg. The weight of the empty vessel (in Kg) is :

**Answer: (1) 1.125**

**Solution:-**

The weight of a vessel, full of water = 16.5 kg

Therefore, the weight of 1/4 vessel , full of water = 16.5/4

The weight of vessel is 1/4 full = 5.25 Kg

= 1.125 kg

Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 1.125
