Answer / shailendra singh
let wt. of bottle is b kgs. and with honey be h=1kg
when h=h/2kg
then bh-b(h-h/2)=0.600
bh/2=0.6
bh=1.2
if h=1
b=0.2kg=200gms

Answer / monica
Weight of bottle full of honey=1kg=1000g
Let weight of bottle=b
Let weight of honey =c
Weight of bottle+weight of honey=1000g
b+c=1000g
b+c/2=600g
Solving
2b+c=1200g
x+y=1000g
Subtracting
x=200g
Weight of bottle=200g

Answer / ziyaur rahman
LET WEIGHT OF BOTTLE=X gr
and WEIGHT OF HONEY=Y gr
now X+Y=1000 gr
again X+Y/2=600 gr
OR 2X+Y=1200 gr
BY SOLVING THIS EQUATION WE GET X=200
THUS WEIGHT OF BOTTLE=200 gr

In every room there is a light switch which not only switches on/off the light in that room, but also switches the lights in the adjacent rooms--the room to the right, to the left, the room above and the room below. Initially, all of the lights are turned off. The goal is to turn the lights on in every room of the palace.
