A. Rs. 18.20 B. Rs. 70 C. Rs. 72 D. Rs. 88.25

C
C.P = Rs ($\frac{100}{122.5} \times 392$) = Rs. ($\frac{1000}{1225} \times 392$) = Rs. 320
i.e, Profit = Rs. (392 - 320) = Rs. 72

### Q2

A. Rs. 1090 B. Rs. 1160 C. Rs. 1190 D. Rs. 1202

C
S.P. = 85% of Rs. 1400 = Rs. ($\frac{85}{100} \times 1400$) = Rs. 1190

### Q3

Sam purchased 20 dozens of toys at the rate of Rs. 375 per dozen. He sold each one of them at the rate of Rs. 33. What was his percentage profit?
A. 3.5 B. 5.8 C. 5.6 D. 6.5

C
Cost Price of 1 toy = Rs. ($\frac{375}{12}$) = Rs. 31.25
Selling Price of 1 toy = Rs. 33
So, Gain = Rs. (33 - 31.25) = Rs. 1.75
Profit % = ($\frac{1.75}{31.25} \times 100$)% = $\frac{28}{5}$ % = 5.6%

### Q4

Some articles were bought at 6 articles for Rs. 5 and sold at 5 articles for Rs. 6. Gain percent is:
A. 30 % B. 33 $\frac{1}{3}$ % C. 35 % D. 44 %

D
Suppose, number of articles bought = L.C.M. of 6 and 5 = 30.
C.P. of 30 articles = Rs. ($\frac{5}{6} \times 30$) = Rs. 25.
S.P. of 30 articles = Rs. ($\frac{6}{5} \times 30$) = Rs. 36.
Gain % = ($\frac{11}{25}\times 100$) % = 44%.

### Q5

On selling 17 balls at Rs. 720, there is a loss equal to the cost price of 5 balls. The cost price of a ball is:
A. Rs. 45 B. Rs. 50 C. Rs. 55 D. Rs. 60

D
(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. ($\frac{720}{12}$) = Rs. 60.
