__Detailed Explanation:__**ย**

**1.**We Know 8.33% = (1 /12), so, (1/12) MP = 220

MP = 220 ร 12 = 2640 and S.P =2640 โ 220 = Rs 2420

**Answer: (c)**

**ย**

**2.**Letย M.P of each of the saree = Rs 100

A paid 100 ร (90 / 100) ร (60 / 100) = Rs 54

B paid 100 ร(80 / 100) ร (70 / 100) = Rs 56

C paid 100 ร (76 / 100) ร (74 / 100) = Rs 56.2

C paid the most and hence got the least discount.

**Answer: (c)**

**ย**

**3.**To find the mark up %, use [ a + b +(ab/100)]

Formula,

16 = a โ 6 +[(a)(-6) /100]

22= [a โ (6a / 100)] โพ 22 = [94/100] aย and a=(2200 / 94) = 23.4 %

Let C. P = 100, MP = 123.4.

S.P =123.4 ร (90 / 100) = 114.76

Profit % = 14. 76%

**Answer: (c)**

**ย**

**4.**Letย CP/gm = Rs.1

Actual CP is for 900gm = Rs 900

CP for 1 kg = Rs 1000, above which he claims to be selling at a profit of x%.

SP for 1 kg = Rs 1000 +[x / 100 (1000)]= 1000 + 10x

Actual Profit % = [SP โ Actual CPย / Actual CP ] ร 100

30 =[ [(1000 + 10x) – 900] / 900 ] ร 100

30 ร 9 = 100 + 10x โพx = 17%

**Answer: (b)**

**ย**

**5.**16.67 % = (1 / 6) , 7.14 % = (1 / 14)

Let CP of A = 600, then he sold to B for Rs 700, B sold it to C for Rs 650, amount spent by C = [(5 / 100) ร 650] = 32.5

CP for C = 650 + 32.5 = 682.5 and he sells to A at profit of 10%

i.e., SP =682.5 ร (110 /100) = 750.75

loss incurred by A = 750.75 โ 700 = Rs. 50.75

**Answer: (a)**

**ย**

**6.**Let investment of A& B = 3x and 2x& their percentage return = 4y% and 3y% then

[(4y / 100) ร 3x] โ 300 = (3y /100) ร 2x

(12 / 100) xy โ 300 = (6 / 100)xy

(6 / 100)xy = 300. Their combined earnings is (18 / 100)xy which is equal toRs 900.

**Answer: (b)**

**ย**

**7.**10% of MP = 8, MP of sweets packet = 80, and amount she paid = 80 โ 8 = Rs.72.

**Answer: (d)**

**ย**

**8.**Total C.P on 3 cars = 1,00,000 ร 3 + 1,25,000 = 4,25,000.

Total profit = (40/100)ร425000=170000

Total S.P = 595000 out of which one of the car is sold for RS.145000

S.P for remaining two = 4,50,000

Price per car = (4,50,000/ 2)= Rs 2,25,000

**Answer: (a)**

**ย**

**9.**Actual CPย ๏ฟซ Letย C.P of trader be Rs 1 / gram, he pays Rs 1000 for 1200 gm, hence his actual C.P.= (10 / 12) per gm, for 900 gm = (10 / 12) ร 900

Actual SPย ย ๏ฟซ [He is charging according to 1000 gm]

C.P of 1000gm = Rs 1000, MP = 16000

S.P = 1600 โ 10% = 1440

Actual Profit % = {[1440 โ (9000 / 12) ] / [9000 / 12]} ร 100

= (8280 / 12) ร (12 / 9000) ร 100

=92%

**Answer: (c)**

**ย**

**10.**Ratio is 1: 4

Pencilย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย Eraser

S.P. / Unitย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย Xย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย a

C.P./ย Unitย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย Yย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย b

When 20 pencils are sold ๏ฟซ 20 x โ 20 y = 6 a

i.e., 20 (x – y) = 6a

When 20 erasers are sold ๏ฟซ 20 b โ 20 a= 8x

i.e., 20 (b – a) =ย 8x

Also % Profit = (6a / 20y)ร 100 and % loss = (8x / 20b) ร 100

Now (6a / 20y) = 2 (8x/ 20b)ร 3a / y = 8x / b โฆโฆ(i)

Also y : b = 3 : 2ร (y / b) = (3 /2) or 2y = 3b, Putting in (i)

We get, 3a / (3/2)b = 8x / bร 2a = 8x and (a / x)ย = (8/ 2)

i.e.,ย x : a = 1:4
