Step 1:
Weight of $K_2CO_3=ag$
Weight of $Li_2CO_3=bg$
For reaction
Meq.of $K_2CO_3$+Meq of $Li_2CO_3$=Meq of HCl
$\large\frac{a\times 1000}{138/2}+\frac{b\times 1000}{74/2}$$=30\times 0.25$
Step 2:
By equation (1) & (2)
$\%$ of $K_2CO_3=\large\frac{0.48}{0.5}$$\times 100$
$\Rightarrow 96\%$
$\%$ of $Li_2CO_3=\large\frac{0.02}{0.5}$$\times 100$
$\Rightarrow 4\%$
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
