### Solution(By Apex Team)

∴According to the question, Container : $\begin{array}{cccc} 1 & \text { II } & \text { III } & \text { IV } \\ \text { M : W } & \text { M : W } & \text { M : W } & \text { M : W } \\ 5: 3 & 2: 1 & 3: 2 & 7: 4 \end{array}$
Container(I): $\Large\frac{\text { Milk }}{\text { Water }}=\frac{5}{3}$ = 1.67
$\begin{array}{l} \text { Container (II) : }\\ \Large\frac{\text { Milk }}{\text { Water }}=\frac{2}{1}\end{array}$ = 2
$\begin{array}{l} \text { Container (III) : }\\ \Large\frac{\text { Milk }}{\text { Water }}=\frac{3}{2}\end{array}$ = 1.5
$\begin{array}{l} \text { Container (IV) : }\\ \Large\frac{\text { Milk }}{\text { Water }}=\frac{7}{4}\end{array}$ = 1.75
∴ The quantity of milk relative to water minimum in container third
