  1. A milkman purchase the milk at Rs. x per litre and sells it at Rs. 2x per litre still he mixes 2 litres water with every 6 litres of pure milk. What is the profit percentage?
    1. 116%
    2. 166.66%
    3. 60%
    4. 100%
  1. Correct Option: B

    Let the cost price of 1 litre pure milk be Rs. 1, then
    for 6 litres (milk) CP = Rs. 6
    for 2 litres (Water) CP = Rs. 0

    and for 8 litres mixture SP = 8 x 2 = Rs.16

    Profit = [(16-6) / 6] x 100 = 1000 / 6 = 166.66 %
