(b) 29,000

(c) 32,000

(d) 28,500

(e) 29,500

**Ans.c**

Original S.P. of company = \(\frac{25,000 \times 100}{85}\) = 29411.8

∴ Approximate total S.P = \(\frac{29411.8 \times 108}{100}\) = 32,000

(b) 30%

(c) 23%

(d) 28%

(e) None of these

**Ans.e**

Cost price = \(\frac{720 \times 100}{120}\) = 600

S.P. at no discount = \(\frac{720 \times 100}{90}\) = 800

∴ % profit = \(\frac{200 \times 100}{600}\) = 33 ^{1}⁄_{3} %

(b) 200

(c) 2,200

(d) Data inadequate

(e) None of these

**Ans.c**

Successive discount = \(20 \% + \frac{20 \times 80}{100}\)

= 20 + 16 = 36%

Difference in discount = 36 – 35 = 1%

\ Bill amount = 22 × 100 = 2200

(b) 12

(d) 8

(e) None of these

**Ans.a**

Let the CP = 100 Marked price = 120

Discount = ^{312}⁄_{31.2} × ^{1}⁄_{100} = 10% = 12

SP = 120 – 12 = 108 Profit% = 108 – 100 = 8%

(b) 27.675

(c) 30

(d) Data inadequate

(e) None of these

**Ans.c**

Giving no discount to customer implies selling the product on printed price. Suppose the cost price of the article is 100.

Then printed price = \(\frac{100 \times \left ( 100 + 23.5 \right )}{\left ( 100 - 5 \right )}\)

= \(\frac{100 \times 247}{190} = 130\)

Hence, required % Profit = 130 – 100 = 30%

(b) 260

(c) 38 mph

(d) Data inadequate

(e) None of these

**Ans.e**

Marked price = 266 × ^{100}⁄_{95} × 280

Cost Price = 280 × ^{100}⁄_{112} = 250

(b) 1060

(c) 1,200

(d) 920

(e) None of these

**Ans.a**

Let the profit or loss be x

and 832 – x = 448 + x or, x = ^{384}⁄_{2} = 192

\ Cost price of the article = 832 – x = 448 + x = 640

\ SP of the article = 640 × ^{150}⁄_{100} = 960

(b) 12.50

(c) 15.50

(d) 13.50

(e) None of these

**Ans.d**

Let he purchase of x/kg.

∴ (525 + 30x) × ^{120}⁄_{100} = 60 × 18.60

⇒ x = 13.5/kg.

(b) 10 per cent profit

(c) 5 per cent loss

(d) 5 per cent profit

(e) None of these

**Ans.b**

CP = ^{200}⁄_{125} × 100 = 160

∴ CP of 6 articles = 6 × 160 = 960

∴ profit = 1056 – 960 = 96

Percentage profit = ^{96}⁄_{960} × 100 = 10%

(b) 4,000

(c) 2,400

(d) 2,000

(e) None of these

**Ans.d**

Original price = 1120 × ^{100}⁄_{70} × ^{100}⁄_{80} = 2000
