**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Cost price of 1 article = Rs. $\frac{3910}{17}$ = Rs. 230

Selling price of 1 article = Rs. $\frac{4590}{17}$ = Rs. 270

Profit % = $\frac{270 – 230}{230} * 100$

= 17.39% $\approx$ 17%

**2)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Profit obtained in selling the article at 3.12%

= $\frac{3.12}{100} * 390 \approx$ Rs. 12

=> Selling price = 390 + 12 = Rs. 402

**3)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Profit = S.P. – C.P. = 2006 – 1700

= Rs. 306

=> Profit % = $\frac{306}{1700} * 100$

= 18%

**4)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

C.P. of 1 article = $\frac{6531}{21}$ = Rs. 311

S.P. of 1 article = $\frac{9954}{21}$ = Rs. 474

=> Profit on 1 article = S.P. – C.P. = 474 – 311

= Rs. 163

$\therefore$ Profit % = $\frac{163}{311} * 100$

= 52.4% $\approx$ 52%

**5)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the person has 2 goods and cost price of each good = Rs. 100

=> Total C.P. = Rs. 200

S.P. of 1st good = $\frac{120}{100} \times 100$ = Rs. 120

S.P. of 2nd good = $\frac{130}{100} \times 100$ = Rs. 130

=> Total S.P. = 120 + 130 = Rs. 250

$\therefore$ Overall profit % = $\frac{250 – 200}{200} \times 100$ = 25 %

**6)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

C.P. of 1 bracelet = Rs. 160

S.P. of 1 bracelet after 15Â % profit

= $\frac{115}{100} \times 160$

= Rs. 184

**7)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let C.P. of each chair = $100x$

Case 1Â : 8 chairs sold at 20% profit

=> S.P. of 8 chairs = $8 \times \frac{120}{100} \times 100x = 960x$

6 chairs sold at 10% profit

=> S.P. of 6 chairs = $6 \times \frac{110}{100} \times 100x = 660x$

$\therefore$ Total S.P. of 14 chairs = $960x + 660x = 1620x$

Case 2Â : 14 chairs sold at 12% profit

=> S.P. of 14 chairs = $14 \times \frac{112}{100} \times 100x = 1568x$

Acc. to ques,

=> $1620x – 1568x = 442$

=> $52x = 442$

=> $xx = \frac{442}{52} = 8.5$

$\therefore$ C.P. of 1 chair = $100 \times 8.5$ = Rs. 850

**8)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

__Let the initial price of the article = Rs. $100x$__

Price after 20% increase = $\frac{120}{100} \times 100x = 120x$

Price after 25% decrease = $\frac{75}{100} \times 120x$

= $90x$

$\therefore$ Net % change = $\frac{100x – 90x}{100x} \times 100$

= $10 \%$

**9)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let cost price = Rs. $100x$

=> Selling price = $100x + \frac{8}{100} \times 100x$

= $108x$

Now, after offering 12% discount, Marked price = $\frac{88}{100} \times 1080 = 108x$

=> $\frac{88}{10} = \frac{108x}{108}$

=> $x = \frac{88}{10} = 8.8$

$\therefore$ C.P. = 100 * 8.8 = Rs. 880

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let theÂ Marked Price = Rs. 100

=> Selling price = $\frac{80}{100} \times 100 = 80$

$\therefore$ Cost price = $\frac{100}{125} \times 80 = 64$

When discount of 10% is allowed

=> S.P. = $\frac{90}{100} \times 100 = 90$

$\therefore$ Required Profit % = $\frac{90 – 64}{64} \times 100$

= $\frac{325}{8} = 40\frac{5}{8} \%$

**11)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let cost price of the article = Rs. $100x$

Loss % = 8%

=> Selling price = $\frac{92}{100} \times 100x = 1380$

=> $x = \frac{1380}{92} = 15$

=> C.P. = $100 \times 15$ = Rs. $1,500$

Profit % = 8%

$\therefore$ Selling price = $\frac{108}{100} \times 1500$

= $108 \times 15$ = Rs. $1,620$

**12)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

CP of B = CP of A +150

SP of A = 1.10 $\times$ CP of A

SP of B = 0.8 $\times$ CP of B = 0.8 $\times$ (CP of A +150)

SP of A : SP of B = 11: 12

1.10 $\times$ CP of A : 0.8 $\times$ (CP of A +150) = 11:12

13.2 $\times$ CP of A = 8.8 $\times$ (CP of A +150)

13.2 $\times$ CP of A – 8.8 $\times$ CP of A = 1320

4.4 $\times$ CP of A = 1320

CP of A = 1320/4.4 = 300

CP of B = Rs. 450/-

Option A is the correct answer.

**13)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

CP of Air Conditioner = Rs 12000

SP of Air Conditioner = Rs 15000

Profit = Rs 3000

Profit % = 3000 $ \times \frac{100}{12000}$ = 25%

**14)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Selling Price = Cost Price$\times$(1-$\frac{\text{Loss percentage}}{100}$)

28,160 = Cost Price$\times$(1-0.15)

28,160 = Cost Price$\times$(0.85)$\approx$33129

Selling Price for profit of 25% = Cost Price $\times$ (1+0.25) = 33129$\times$1.25 $\approx$ =41411

Hence Option E is the correct answer.

**15)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

C.P of article = 6500 * (100/80)

= Rs. 8125

S.P for a gain of 20% = (8125*120)/100 = Rs. 9750
