  1. The profit percentage on the three articles A , B and C is 10%,20% and 25% and the ratio of the cost price is 1 : 2 : 4 . Also the ratio of number of articles sold of A , B and C is 2 : 5 : 2 then the overall profit percentage is :
    1. 18.5 %
    2. 21 %
    3. 75 %
    4. none of these
  1. Correct Option: B

    CP of A + B + c = 2xy + 5x*2y - 2x*4y = 20xy

    profit of A = 0.2xy
    profit of B = 2xy
    profit of C = 2xy
    Total profit = 4.2xy

    % profit = (4.2xy / 20xy) X 100 = 21%
