Expert Answer:

Molarity = no of moles/volume in litre

  Mole fraction of ethanol =no. of moles of ethanol  /  (no. of moles of ethanol)+(no. of moles of water)--------(1)

                             Mole fraction of water =no. of moles of  water /  (no. of moles of ethanol)+(no. of moles of water)---(2)

mole fraction of water = 1- .040


dividing eq(1) by (2)

.040 / .060= no. of moles of ethanol/55.5

no of moles of ehanol=37

molarity = 37/1
