A. 15

B. 16

C. 18

D. 25

ANSWERS:

1. B

Explanation:

Cost Price (C.P.) = Rs. (4700 + 800) = Rs. 5500.

Selling Price (S.P.) = Rs. 5800

Gain = (S.P.) - (C.P.) = Rs.(5800 - 5500) = Rs. 300.

Gain % = (300 x 100)X5500 = 60/11%

2. B

Explanation:

Let C.P.= Rs. 100. Then, Profit = Rs. 320, S.P. = Rs. 420.

New C.P. = 125% of Rs. 100 = Rs. 125

New S.P. = Rs. 420.

Profit = Rs. (420 - 125) = Rs. 295.

Required percentage = (295 x 100)420 % = 1475/21% = 70% (approximately)

3.C

Explanation:

C.P. of 6 toffees = Re. 1

S.P. of 6 toffees = 120% of Re. 1 = Rs. 6/5

For Rs. 6/5 , toffees sold = 6.

For Re. 1, toffees sold = (6 x 5)/5 = 5

4.D

Explanation:

(C.P. of 17 balls) - (S.P. of 17 balls) = (C.P. of 5 balls)

C.P. of 12 balls = S.P. of 17 balls = Rs.720.

C.P. of 1 ball = Rs.720/12 = Rs. 60

5. B

Explanation:

C.P. of 56 kg rice = Rs. (26 x 20 + 30 x 36) = Rs. (520 + 1080) = Rs. 1600.

S.P. of 56 kg rice = Rs. (56 x 30) = Rs. 1680.

Gain = (80 x 100)/1600 % = 5%

6. C

Explanation:

S.P. = 85% of Rs. 1400 = Rs.(85 x 1400)/100 = Rs. 1190

7. C

Explanation:

Cost Price of 1 toy = Rs. 375/12 = Rs. 31.25

Selling Price of 1 toy = Rs. 33

So, Gain = Rs. (33 - 31.25) = Rs. 1.75

Profit % = (1.75 x 100)/31.25 % = 28/5 % = 5.6%

8. D

Explanation:

Suppose, number of articles bought = L.C.M. of 6 and 5 = 30.

C.P. of 30 articles = Rs. (5 x 30)/6 = Rs. 25

S.P. of 30 articles = Rs. (6 x 30)/5 = Rs. 36

Gain % = (11 x 100)/25 % = 44%

9.C

Explanation:

C.P. = Rs. (100 x 392)/122.5 = Rs. (1000 x 392)/1225 = Rs. 320

Profit = Rs. (392 - 320) = Rs. 72

10. B

Explanation:

Let C.P. of each article be Re. 1 C.P. of x articles = Rs. x.

S.P. of x articles = Rs. 20.

Profit = Rs. (20 - x)

(20 - x)x x 100 = 25

2000 - 100x = 25x

125x = 2000

x = 16

A. 32/7%

B. 60/11%

C. 10%

D. 12%

A. 15

B. 16

C. 18

D. 25

ANSWERS:

1. B

Explanation:

Cost Price (C.P.) = Rs. (4700 + 800) = Rs. 5500.

Selling Price (S.P.) = Rs. 5800

Gain = (S.P.) - (C.P.) = Rs.(5800 - 5500) = Rs. 300.

Gain % = (300 x 100)X5500 = 60/11%

2. B

Explanation:

Let C.P.= Rs. 100. Then, Profit = Rs. 320, S.P. = Rs. 420.

New C.P. = 125% of Rs. 100 = Rs. 125

New S.P. = Rs. 420.

Profit = Rs. (420 - 125) = Rs. 295.

Required percentage = (295 x 100)420 % = 1475/21% = 70% (approximately)

3.C

Explanation:

C.P. of 6 toffees = Re. 1

S.P. of 6 toffees = 120% of Re. 1 = Rs. 6/5

For Rs. 6/5 , toffees sold = 6.

For Re. 1, toffees sold = (6 x 5)/5 = 5

4.D

Explanation:

(C.P. of 17 balls) - (S.P. of 17 balls) = (C.P. of 5 balls)

C.P. of 12 balls = S.P. of 17 balls = Rs.720.

C.P. of 1 ball = Rs.720/12 = Rs. 60

5. B

Explanation:

C.P. of 56 kg rice = Rs. (26 x 20 + 30 x 36) = Rs. (520 + 1080) = Rs. 1600.

S.P. of 56 kg rice = Rs. (56 x 30) = Rs. 1680.

Gain = (80 x 100)/1600 % = 5%

6. C

Explanation:

S.P. = 85% of Rs. 1400 = Rs.(85 x 1400)/100 = Rs. 1190

7. C

Explanation:

Cost Price of 1 toy = Rs. 375/12 = Rs. 31.25

Selling Price of 1 toy = Rs. 33

So, Gain = Rs. (33 - 31.25) = Rs. 1.75

Profit % = (1.75 x 100)/31.25 % = 28/5 % = 5.6%

8. D

Explanation:

Suppose, number of articles bought = L.C.M. of 6 and 5 = 30.

C.P. of 30 articles = Rs. (5 x 30)/6 = Rs. 25

S.P. of 30 articles = Rs. (6 x 30)/5 = Rs. 36

Gain % = (11 x 100)/25 % = 44%

9.C

Explanation:

C.P. = Rs. (100 x 392)/122.5 = Rs. (1000 x 392)/1225 = Rs. 320

Profit = Rs. (392 - 320) = Rs. 72

10. B

Explanation:

Let C.P. of each article be Re. 1 C.P. of x articles = Rs. x.

S.P. of x articles = Rs. 20.

Profit = Rs. (20 - x)

(20 - x)x x 100 = 25

2000 - 100x = 25x

125x = 2000

x = 16
