Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

(a) 1 gallon = 3.7854 litres

5 gallon = 5*3.7854 = 18.927 litres = 18927 milli-litres

(b) 1 oz = 28.3495 gms

12.07 oz = 12.07*28.3495 gms

Hence, sugar = (25/100)*12.07*28.3495 gms =85.544 gms

(c) 15.28 lbs = 15.28*453.6 gms

Hence, volume = 15.28*453.6/0.035 ml = 198028.8 ml = 198.0288 L

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
