**Slot -1 – Quantitative Aptitude – Arithmetic – Ratios – Raju and Lalitha originally had marbles **

**Raju and Lalitha originally had marbles in the ratio 4:9. Then Lalitha gave some of her marbles to Raju. As a result, the ratio of the number of marbles with Raju to that with Lalitha became 5:6. What fraction of her original number of marbles was given by Lalitha to Raju?**

a) 6/19

b) 7/33

c) 1/5

d) ¼

**Solution:**

Let original number of marbles with Raju and Lalitha are 4x and 9x respectively. Let Lalitha gave n marbles to Raju and the ratio becomes 5:6

So (4x+n)/(9x-n)=5/6

24x+6n=45x-5n

21x=11n

n=21x/11

Fraction of marbles given by Lalitha to Raju = n/9x=(21x/11)/9x=7/33

Correct answer b) 7/33
