Flower-nectar contains 50% of non-water part.

In honey this non-water part constitutes 85% (100-15).

Therefore 0.5 X Amount of flower-nectar = 0.85 X Amount of honey = 0.85 X 1 kg
Therefore amount of flower-nectar needed = .85/.5*1= 1.7 kgs

9.(C)

Let the amount taxable purchases be Rs. x.

Then, 6% of x=30/100

x=30/100*100/6 = 5
Cost of tax free items = Rs. [25 – (5 + 0.30)] = Rs. 19.70
10. C
