**Ans: a**

Let the number of blue marbles at present be x. The number of pink marbles at present are 5x. If we put back 9 blue marbles, the equation becomes x + 9 = 2 × 5x, which gives 9x = 9, or x = 1 marbles. Note: some information in the question is never used, it is given for confusing the candidate.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the number of blue marbles at present be x. The number of pink marbles at present are 5x. If we put back 45 blue marbles, the equation becomes x + 45 = 2 × 5x, which gives 9x = 45, or x = 5 marbles. Note: some information in the question is never used, it is given for confusing the candidate.
