The easiest way to get the correct answer for questions like this is to take the object to the surface first. This gives you a constant to work with for the second part of the equation. 

Let's work through it. 

20% capacity at 25m/sw means it's under 3.5ATA of pressure. If taken to 1ATA it's capacity will increase to 70% (20x3.5=70) 

We can then take the lifting device back down to 10m/sw which means it will be under 2ATA of pressure leaving it's capacity at 35%. (70/2=35)

Know your way around a vessel? 

The Stern is at the rear so if you're facing portside will be to your right, starboard to your left and the bow behind you.

Listed underneath Table 3 of your PADI or on the inside lid of your eRDPml is listed Special Rules for Multiple Dives.

This states that when planing 3 dives or more any dive ending in pressure group Y must have a 3-hour surface interval. This then applies to all subsequent dives in that sequence.
