Answer: (4) 40 
Explanation:-
Let the capacity of tin be = X liters.
Volume of oil in tin bottle = 4 X/5  liters
Take 6 bottle and poured 4 bottle
Then  4 X/5 – 6 + 4 = 3 X/4
– 2 = 3 X/4 – 4 X/5
– 2 = (3 X x 5 – 4 X x 4)/20
– 2 = (15 X – 16 X)/20
– 2 = – X/20
2 = X/20
X = 40 bottles
Hence, the answer is (4) 40 bottles.
