A - 10%
B - 12.50%
C - 11.50%
D - 12%

Solution:
1.
Explanation
CP = 4600 * (100/115)
=Re 4000

Loss% = [(4000-3600)/4000]*100%
= 10%

2.

Explanation
Assume CP = x
Selling price at the first case = (95/100)x
Selling price at the second case = (60/100)*(120/100)x
= (7200/10000)x

As per question,
(95/100)x - (7200/10000)x = 150
Or, x = Re 500

3.

Explanation
CP = 540*(100/90)
= Re 600

New SP = 600*(95/100)
= Re 570

4.
Explanation
CP = 60*(100/120)
= Re 50
New SP = Re 55
Gain% = (5/50)*100
=10%

5.

Explanation
CP of 1/4th of the stock = 1600/4 = Re 400
SP of 1/4th of the stock = 400*(80/100)
=Re 320

In order to make a profit of 10% on total CP, the SP should be:
SP = 1600*(110/100)
= Re 1760

∴The SP for the remaining 3/4th of the stock
should be Re 1760 - Re 320 = Re 1440.

Cost Price of the 3/4th of stock
= Re 1600 - Re 400 = Re 1200.
∴%Gain = [(1440-1200)/1200*100}]
= (240/1200)*100
= 20%

6.
Explanation
10% of Re 110 = Re 11
Cost of 2 kg of wheat at new price = Re 11
So, cost of 1 kg of wheat at new price = Re 5.50 = Re 11/2

Original Price = (11/2)*(100/110)
= Re 5 per kg

7.

Explanation
4 kg of rice costs Re 32
∴10kg of rice will cost = (32/4)*10 = Re 80

20 kg of wheat costs Re 80.
∴25kg of wheat costs = (80/20)*25 = Re 100

2kg of tea costs Re 100
∴5 kg of tea costs = (100/2)*5 = Re 250

25kg of sugar costs Re 250.
∴6 kg of sugar costs = (250/25)*6 = Re 60

8.

Explanation
Let CP = x paisa.
Initial SP = x*(120/100) paisa

As per question,
120x/100 + 25 = (145/100)x
or, 145x/100 - 120x/100 = 25
or, 25x/100 = 25
or, x = 100 paisa

CP = 100 paisa or Re 1.
Initial SP = 120 paisa or Re 1.20.

9.

Explanation
Applying direct formula, %loss = (16/10)2%
= 64/25%
= 2.56%

10.
Explanation
Let CP = Re 100.
The, marked price, MP = Re 150
SP = 75% of Re 150 = Re 112.50
∴ Gain% = 12.50%
