Ghalib fills 1/3 of the container with orange soda. The remaining of the container is (1-1/3)= 2/3
Let, orange soda= x cups
lemon-lime soda= 4 cups (given)
Here, the ratio is
1/3 : 2/3 = x : 4
1/3 ÷ 2/3 = x ÷ 4
1/3 × 3/2 = x × 1/4
2x = 4
x = 2
Hence, orange soda = 2 cups
Now, special soda drink contains (2+4) = 6 cups
We know 1 cup = 1/2 pint
so, 6 cups= (6 × 1/2) = 3 pints
Eventually, Ghalib made 3 pints of his special soda drink

If 1/3 of the container is orange soda then the remaining is 2/3
(1/3 + 2/3 = 1 whole container)

4 cups lemon-lime soda = 2/3 of the container

4 cups * (3/2) = 12/2 = 6 cups total

There are 2 cups in 1 pint

6 cups / 2 cups = 3 pints soda
