a) Rs.2000

b) Rs.4000

c) Rs.5000

d) None of these

Let the CP = Cost Price and SP = Selling Price.

Profit = SP – CP = 536 – CP

Loss = CP – SP = CP – 426

Now as Profit = Loss

2CP = 536 + 426 = 962

CP = 481

Hence, the cost price is Rs. 481.

Profit percentage = [2/(12 – 2)] × 100 = 20%

Cp of mobile = (863+631) /2 = Rs.747

Let the CP be x

2(84 – x) = 96 – x

x = 72

(82.50/30) × 100 = Rs.275

Varun bought the headphone = 275 × 0.70 = Rs.192.50

We do not know the total investment of the builder, because in the question construction cost is not given. Hence it cannot be determined.

Equivalent discount = 10 + 20 – (10×20)/100

=30 – 2 = 28%

SP of 1 apple = 5/10 = ½

CP of 1 apple = 100/ (100+20) × ½ = Rs.5/12

So, she got 12 apples for 5 rupees.

Let the purchase be x kg

(525 + 30x) × 120/100 = 60 × 18.60

x = Rs.13.50/kg
