Answered

- 10
- 20
- 30
- 40

Best answer

**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.
