Q.1) Answer: c

Let us take CP be Rs.100

SP= 110 =80% of marked price

MP = 110/80*100=137.5

Required percentage = 37.5/100*100=37.5%

Q.2) Answer: d




Simplify the above equation, we get x=10%

Q.3) Answer: a

Let us take CP of an article be x

SP = 110/100 *x

CP= 80/100*x

SP=110/100 *x+50=200/100*80/100*x


Q.4) Answer: e

Let us take CP of one at x and another at 5400-x





Required difference= 3000-2400=600

Q.5) Answer: a

Let us take CP Rs.100

MP = 150

SP= 150*80/100=120

Profit = 120-100=20

Incase profit = 60

SP= 160


Required percentage = 100/100*100=100%

Q.6) Answer: c

Let us take CP be Rs.100

Nandi’s selling price = 120*90/100=108

Profit %= 8/100*100=8%

Kavi’s SP = 125*88/100=110

Profit % =10%

Q.7) Answer: b

CP = 288/96*100=Rs.300

MP= 300+300*1/3=400


Simplify the above equation, we get x=10%

Q.8) Answer: a

Over all CP=7200

Over all SP = 7200*105/100=7560



Simplify the above equation, we get x=3600

Required difference = 3600*130/100-3600*80/100=4680-2880=1800

Q.9) Answer: a


(2x*75/100)-(x*120/100) =2400


Total CP = 3*8000=24000

Q.10) Answer: d
