Problem Of The Week 34
Rakesh has the habit of always pouring his tea from the cup into the saucer before drinking it. He fills both the cup and the saucer to only 90% of their capacity (subject to the availability of tea). He also does not drink any tea which is below the 15% mark in the saucer. If he has to pour the tea from the cup into the saucer at least three times before emptying the cup (each time drinking from the saucer till it reaches the minimum level), then what is the maximum possible ratio of the volume of the cup to that of the saucer respectively? (1) 3 : 1 (2) 9 : 4 (3) 5 : 2 (4) 8 : 3 (5) None of these.
