    100 kg of potato caontains 98% water so wgt of water is 98kgs....
    when the content of water reduces to 50% so new wgt of water is 49kgs...
    so the ans is 49+ 2(100-98<the non water content>)=51

    Originally, out of 100 kg, 2 kg was solid stuff and 98 kg was liquid. After drying, 2 kg of solid stuff remains as it is and liquid stuff is reduced to 2 kg of equivalent liquid. Then, the percentage of water decreases to 50%. So the weight of potato now is 4 kg.
