- Weight in dried grape = 80% of total weight =2 kg.

So weight of dried grape =2*100/80=2.5

3/4*90+3/4(bag cost) =65+ turban.

Since not determined is not an option, so we have to consider the cost of bag as=0.

So, turban =10Sent from my BlackBerry®**From:**ambarish kulkarni <ambarish_22@...>**Sender:**ascent4cat@yahoogroups.com**Date:**Tue, 11 Oct 2011 19:08:30 +0530 (IST)**To:**ascent4cat@yahoogroups.com<ascent4cat@yahoogroups.com>**ReplyTo:**ascent4cat@yahoogroups.com**Subject:**Re: [2IIM CAT Prep] (unknown)Question 1.Answer is 2.4 kg.Initially wt was 20 kg.
