Heat gained by calorimeter+ heat gained by water to reach 60 degrees + heat gained by ice to melt to water
at 0degrees + heat gained by melted ice to reach 60degrees= heat provided by steam to convert into water+ 
heat lost by condensed steam at 100degrees to reach 60 degrees
 
Let mass of ice present in mixture be ‘a’ grams.
Therefore,
(100x0.2x60)+( 200x1x60)+ (a x 80)+ (ax1x60)= (40x540) +( 40x1x (100-60))
1200+12000+140a= 21600+1600
13200+140a= 23200
140a=10000
a=1000/14=71.42g
 i hope this is the right answer. thanks for the question :D
