C.P for 1 banana is =8/9 Rs.

S.P for 1 banana is =9/8 Rs.

So, profit is=(9/8-8/9)/(8/9)×100=26.56%.

C is correct choice.

Let say cost price is c and marked price is m.

So, 0.40m=c.

or, m=2.5c.

so, he marked up by 1.5 times more than of cost price or by 150% more than cost price.

C is correct choice.

Resultant selling price = $800\times\left(1+\frac{150}{100}\right)\times0.60=1200\ Rs.$

A is correct choice.

Marked Price= (100+125)%= 225% of Rs.640= Rs.1440

Discount offered= 25%

So, Selling Price= (100-25)% of Rs.1440= Rs.1080

Therefore, Option A is correct.

CP after first discount= (100-12)% of Rs.10,000= Rs.8800

But the item is sold at Rs 8,360,

So, additional discount offered= $(8800-8360)\times100\div8800$= 5%

Therefore, Option C is cprrect.

Discount in price of smartphone= Rs.(25000-18000)= Rs.7000

% discount given= $7000\times100\div25000$= 28%

Therefore, Option C is correct.

Given SP=14.4
loss %=10 %
Therefore 0.9CP=14.4
CP=14.4/0.9
CP=16
Required profit=25%
SP=1.25CP
=(5/4)*16
=20

MP-discount=SP
0.85 MP=SP
MP=816/0.85
MP=Rs 960
Now discount =25%
MP-discount=SP
0.75*960=SP
SP=Rs 720

Each cheese tin cost Rs 750
Discount=8%
Cost of each=750*92/100
=690
Cost of 5 cheese tins=3450
Each butter tin=Rs 1250
discount=20%
Cost of each butter tin=1250*4/5
=1000
Cost of 3 butter tins=Rs 3000
Total cost=3450+3000
=6450
Total cost without discount=750*5+1250*3
=3750+3750
=7500
Percent=(6450/7500)*100
=86%
Discount=100-86
=14%
