1. Rs. 1410
2. Rs. 1400
3. Rs. 1140
4. Rs. 1104

1. S.P. of ceiling fan
= (100 – 5)% of Rs. 1200

 = Rs. 1200 × 95 = Rs. 1140 100

##### Correct Option: C

1. At what percentage above the cost price must an article be marked so as to gain 33% after allowing a customer a discount of 5% ?
1. 40%
2. 45%
3. 35%
4. 47%

1. Let the C.P. of article be Rs.
100 and the marked price be Rs. x.
According to the question,

 95% of x = 100 × 133 100

 ⇒ x × 95 = 133 100

 ⇒  x = 133 × 100 = Rs. 140 i.e.,40% above than C.P. 95

##### Correct Option: A

Let the C.P. of article be Rs.
100 and the marked price be Rs. x.
According to the question,

 95% of x = 100 × 133 100

 ⇒ x × 95 = 133 100

 ⇒  x = 133 × 100 = Rs. 140 i.e.,40% above than C.P. 95

1. The rate of discount being given on a shirt, where selling price is Rs. 576 after deducting a discount of Rs. 109 on its marked price, is :
1. 14%
2. 18%
3. 15%
4. 16%

1. Marked price of shirt
= Rs. (576 + 109)
= Rs. 685
Let the rate of discount be x%.
∴ x % of 685 = 109

 ⇒ 685 × x = 109 100

 ⇒  x = 109 × 100 = 16% 685

##### Correct Option: D

Marked price of shirt
= Rs. (576 + 109)
= Rs. 685
Let the rate of discount be x%.
∴ x % of 685 = 109

 ⇒ 685 × x = 109 100

 ⇒  x = 109 × 100 = 16% 685

1. Let the C.P. of article be Rs. 100.
∴  Its marked price = Rs. 110
S.P. after a discount of 10%

 = Rs. 110 × 90 = Rs. 99 100

∴ Loss = Rs. (100 – 99)
= Re. 1 i.e., 1%

##### Correct Option: C

Let the C.P. of article be Rs. 100.
∴  Its marked price = Rs. 110
S.P. after a discount of 10%

 = Rs. 110 × 90 = Rs. 99 100

∴ Loss = Rs. (100 – 99)
= Re. 1 i.e., 1%
