1. 56%
2. 34%
3. 26%
4. 43%
5. None of these

1). Ans: C)

110 % of SP = 16302

SP of a mobile = (16302 / 110) * 100 = 14820

CP = (100 / 114) * 14820 = 13000

Cost price of the mobile = Rs. 13000

2). Ans: C)

Suppose, marked price of the article be Rs. X

Then, 85% of x = 119

X ร (85 / 100) = 119

X = 119*(20/17) = 140

x = Rs. 140

3). Ans: C)

According to the question,

Profit = Loss

SP1 โ CP = CP โ SP2

2400 โ CP = CP โ 1680

2400 + 1680 = 2CP

CP = 4080/2 = 2040

SP = 2040 * (125 /100) = 2040 * (5/4) = Rs. 2550

(Or)

CP = (2400+1680)/2 = 2040

Required SP = 2040*125/100 = Rs.2550

4). Ans: B)

Company Profit % = (60-50)/50*100=100/5 =20 %

Then Dealers Profit % = (80-60)/60*100=100/3 =33 1/3 %

Then Shopkeeper Profit % = (100-80)/80*100 =25 %

Among the three, Dealer gets highest profit %

5).Ans: B)

To take CP = 100

Marked price = 120

120 * 90/100 * 75/100 = 81

Loss = 100 โ 81 = 19

19 % of CP = 1900

CP = (100 /19) * 1900 = Rs. 10000

SP = 10000- 1900 = 8100

6). Ans: D

CP of 1 novel = Rs. 4300/50 = Rs.86

Now SP of 50 books = CP of 50 Novels + SP of 7 Novels

=> SP of 43 Novels = 4300

SP of 1 Novel = 4300/43 = Rs.100

Therefore,

Required SP of 1 dozen books = Rs. 1200

7). Ans: B)

Marked Price = Rs. 575

CP = 575 * (100/115) = 500

Profit = Selling Price โ 500

And given that, when SP increased by 25%

Let the original selling price be Rs. x,

125/100 * SP โ 500 = Profit + 110

5/4 x โ 500 = (SP – CP) + 110

5x/4 โ 500 = x โ 500 + 110

5x/4 โ x = 110

(5x โ 4x) / 4 = 110

x = 440

Selling price = Rs. 440

8).Ans: B)

CP = Rs. 120

Then SP = 110/100 * 120 = 132

Let the marked price be x,

So, SP = 96 % of Marked price

132 = (96/100)* x

X = 132*(100/96) = 137.5

Required marked price = Rs. 137.5

9). Ans: A)

SP of Hard Disk = 250 * 92/100 * 90/100 = 207

Expense on transport = Rs. 8

CP = 250/165*100 = 152 (Approximately)

Profit % = [(207- (152+8))/(152+8)]*100 = 29%(Approximately)

10). Ans: B)

Let M.P = 100, then S.P. = (82 / 100) ร 100 = 82

C.P = 82 ร (100 / 97) = 84.5

Mark up above Cost Price = [(100 โ 84.5) / 84.5] ร 100 = 18.34%
