A mixture contains alcohol and water in the ratio of 12:5. On adding 14 liters of water, the ratio of alcohol to water becomes 4:3. The quantity of alcohol in the mixture is:

**Option A):**

18 liters**Option B):**

24 liters

24 liters

The two given ratios are 12:5 and 4:3

In order to equate the antecedents of the two ratios, we write the second ratio as 12:9

Now, we have, a:b = 12:5, c:d = 12:9 and x = 14

The quantity of alcohol in the mixture = ax/c-b = 12X14/12-5 = 24 liters
