The language is very confusing:
"Sugar by water" means
Sugar/Water = 20%.
If you go ahead a solve it. It doesn't match the options
But if you consider "Sugar by Water" as Sugar/(Sugar + Water)= 20% and voila we have our answer as E. 2 litres.

Wouldn't sugar + water always be a 100%.
Ratio of Sugar /water = 20/80
I could not understand what has changed?
1. Since its ratio (Sugar by water) Sugar/water = 20/100(since 20% can be represented as 20/100). That means total sugar syrup = 100+20=120.
The above interpretation if we solve, we get very different answer(answer will be 25/3-8=0.33 litres)
2. If solve by reading Sugar by water as Sugar/Sugar Syrup = 20/100. Then the solution will be different.
Thats why I caveated that the language is confusing and ambigious.
If we consider the second understanding then it gives an answer as 2 Litres.
