  1. I asked the shopkeeper the price of a wristwatch. I found that I had just the required sum of money. When the shopkeeper allowed me a discount of 25%, I could bought another watch worth Rs. 940 for my younger sister. What is the price Which I have paid for my own watch?
    1. Rs. 2700
    2. Rs.1800
    3. Rs. 2820
    4. Rs. 3760
  1. Correct Option: C

    If I had Rs. 100
    Discount = 25 = cost of my sister's watch

    The cost of my own watch = 75
    Thus the ratio of cost of my own watch to that of my sister's watch = 3 : 1
    So the cost of my own watch = 3 x 940 = 2820
