    Answer: (3) 20 kg
    Explanation:-
    The weight of vessel full of water = 40 kg
    The weight of vessel half filled of water = 30 kg

    Then, the weight of half water of vessel = 40 – 30
    = 10 kg
    Therefore, the weight of the water of the vessel = 2 x 10
    = 20 kg.

    Then, the weight of the vessel = 40 – 20
    = 20 kg

    Hence, the answer is (3) 20 kg.
