    Answer: (3) 10 kg.
    Explanation:-
    The weight of a bucket when filled fully with water = 17 kg.
    The weight of bucket when half filled filled with water  = 13.5 kg.
    The weight of water of bucket = 17 – 13.5 = 3.5 kg.
    The total weight of water = 2 x 3.5 = 7 kg.
    The weight empty bucket = 17 – 7 = 10 kg.
    Hence, the answer is (3) 10 kg.
