  1. Arun bought toffees at 6 for a rupee. How many for a rupee he should sell to gain 20% ?
    1. 3
    2. 4
    3. 5
    4. can't be determined
  1. Correct Option: C

    You can go through options.
    CP = 100 / 6 = 16.66 paisa
    SP = 100 / 5 = 20 paisa

    Profit (%) = [( 20 - 16.66 ) / 16.66 ] X 100
    = [ 3.33 /16.66 ] X 100
    = ( 1 / 5 ) X 100 = 20%
    Hence, option (c) is correct.


    Alternatively:
    CP = 100 / 6
    SP = ( 100 / 6 ) X 1.2 = 100 / 5

    Hence, he should sell 5 toffees for Re. 1 (100 paisa)
