Answer : 4. "120 litres"
Explanation :

Answer: D) 120 litres Explanation: wine(left)wine(added) = 343169   It means  wine(left)wine(initial amount) = 343512    (since 343 + 169 = 512)    Thus,  343x = 512x1 - 15k3    343512 = 783 = 1 - 15k3    1-15k=78=1-18    Thus the initial amount of wine was 120 liters.
