  1. What is percentage profit in selling an article at a discount of 20% which was earlier being sold at a 40% profit ?
    1. 20%
    2. 14%
    3. 28%
    4. 12%
  1. Correct Option: D

    Initially :
    CP =100
    SP = 140 (Since profit = 40 %)

    New price :
    CP =100
    SP = 140 - 20% = 112
    MP = 140

    Profit % = [(112 - 100 )/100] = 12 %
