Mr. Yadav bought Sweets = large frac{1}{2}kg

After his children had eaten , there was amount of Sweets left = large frac{1}{10}kg

Let the amount of eaten be x

x = Total amount - amount left

large x=  large frac{1}{2}-frac{1}{10}=frac{5-1}{10}=frac{4}{10}=frac{2}{5}

large x=frac{2}{5}

The amount of eaten is large frac{2}{5}.

My experience with Abhyas is very good. I have learnt many things here like vedic maths and reasoning also. Teachers here first take our doubts and then there are assignments to verify our weak points.
