A) 48%

B) 73 %

C) 42 %

D) 60 %

Solution

Lets assume

Total 5 articles (sold at 100)

Then 5 x100 —–500

2 x 100 —–200

But sold at 12 % loss

200x 12/100 = 176

3—-300

As per question total is % profit

500x 18/100 = 590

But already 2 sold at 176.

Remaining 590-176=414

414 rupees should be gained by selling remaining 3 products

But

3—–300

——414

Difference 114/300×100

= **38% Answer**
