The vapour pressure of a pure liquid A is 80 mmHg at 300K.It forms an ideal solution with liquid B.When the mole fraction of B is 0.4,the total pressure was found to be 88 mmHg.The vapour pressure of liquid A would be

$\begin{array}{1 1}\text{84 mmHg}\\\text{90 mmHg}\\\text{100 mmHg}\\\text{120 mmHg}\end{array} $

Answer : 100 mmHg
$\Rightarrow 0.6\times 80$ mmHg+$0.4p_B^*=88$ mmHg
Hence $p_B^*=\large\frac{(88-0.6\times 80)mmHg}{0.4}$
$\Rightarrow $100 mmHg
