C) 33.33% D) 18%

Answer:   B) 25%



Explanation:

when the water is freely available and all the water is sold at the price of the milk, then the water gives the profit on the cost of 20 liters of milk.

 Therefore, profit percentage = (5/20) x 100 =25 %       [ Profit %= (Profit/C.P)*100]

Q:

Cost Price of 22 articles is same as the Selling Price of 18 articles, find the profit percentage?

A) 33.33% B) 22.22%
C) 11.11% D) 1%
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 22.22%

Explanation:

Let the cost price of 1 article = Rs. 1

From the given data,

Then, the selling price of 1 article = 22/18 = 11/9

Then, Profit = SP - CP = 11/9 - 1 = 2/9

Required, profit % = Profit/CP x 100

= [(2/9)/1] x 100

= 200/9

= 22.222%.
