a) 4 : 5

b) 5 : 6

correct answer is: a) 4 : 5

#### Explanation

The first mixture acid and water ratio is 4 : 5 or \large\frac{4}{5}

The second mixture acid and water ratio is 5 : 6 or \large\frac{5}{6}

If we bring the denominator same, we get:

\large\frac{4}{5}=\frac{4\times6}{5\times6}=\frac{24}{30}\normalsize ---(1)

\large\frac{5}{6}=\frac{5\times5}{6\times5}=\frac{25}{30}\normalsize ---(2)

\therefore In the first mixture water quantity is \left(30-24\right)=6

And, in the second moisture water quantity is \left(30-25\right)=5

\therefore First mixture (4 : 5) water quantity is higher.**Ans:** 4 : 5 is the first mixture where water quantity is higher.

##### These precise math questions can also be expressed as:
