Q:

A person sold two cows each for Rs.9900. If he gained 10% on one and lost 20% on the other, then which of the following is true?

A) He Gained Rs. 200 B) He lost Rs. 200
C) He neither gained nor lost D) None of the above

Answer:   D) None of the above



Explanation:

The CP of profitable cow  = 9900/1.1 = 9000

 

and profit = Rs. 900

 

The  CP of loss yielding cow = 9900/0.8 = 12375

 

and loss = Rs. 2475

 

so, the net loss = 2475 - 900 = 1575

Q:

Namitha sold a powerbank which is at the cost of Rs. 1950 at a loss of 25%. Find at what cost will she have to sell it to get a profit of 25%?

A) Rs. 3680 B) Rs. 3560
C) Rs. 3320 D) Rs. 3250
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Rs. 3250

Explanation:

Let the Cost price of the powerbank = Rs. P

But given that by selling it at Rs. 1950, it gives a loss of 25%

=> P x 75100 = 1950
=>P = 1950 x 10075 = Rs. 2600
Now, to get a profit of 25%

Selling Price = 2600 x 125100 = Rs. 3250.

Q:

Manisha went to shop with certain amount, with which she can buy 50 Chacobar or 40 Fivestar. She uses 10% amount for petrol and out of the remaining balance, she purchases 20 Fivestar and some Chacobar. Find the number of Chacobar she can buy?

A) 20 B) 24
C) 26 D) 28
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 20

Explanation:

Let the total amount be 200 {L.C.M of 40 and 50}

Chacobar C.P. = 200/50 = 4

Fivestar C.P = 200/40 = 5

Remaining Money after petrol = [200 - 200×10%] = 180

Remaining money after buying fivestars = [180 - 20×5] = 80

So number of Chacobar she can buy = 80/4 = 20

Q:

A salesman calculated his profit on the marked price and finds it to be 30%. He forgets the fact that he gave a discount of 20%. What is his actual profit percentage?   

A) 260/11% B) 18.4%
C) 22.5% D) 100/7%
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 100/7%

Explanation:

When profit is calculated on Marked Price (M.P) then,

      • C.P = M.P - P%

Let M.P = 100

 => C.P = 100 - 30 = 70

 But S.P = Rs. 80 as he gave 20% discount,

 Now, Actual Profit = 80-7070x100

  = 100/7 %

Q:

A shopkeeper sold a mobile phone for Rs. 12000. Had he offered discount of 10% on the selling price, there would be a loss of 4%. What is the cost price of that Mobile phone?

A) Rs. 12,500 B) Rs. 11,250
C) Rs. 12,750 D) Rs. 11,680
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Rs. 11,250

Explanation:

Given that SP = Rs. 12000 - 10%  = Rs. 10,800

Loss% = 4

We know that, C.P = 100/(100 - Loss%) x 100

=> 100/100-4 x 10800

=> 1080000/96

C.P = Rs. 11,250

A) 13.8 % B) 11.4 %
