  1. By selling an article at 3/4th of the marked price, there is a gain of 25%. The ratio of the marked price and the cost price is
    1. 5 : 3
    2. 3 : 5
    3. 3 : 4
    4. 4 : 3
Correct Option: A

Let MP of an article = ₹ R
∴ SP of an article = ₹ 3R/4
and CP of an article
= (3R/4) x {100/(100 + 25)}
= 3R/4 x (100/125)
= ₹ 3R/5
Required ratio = R : 3R/5 = 5 : 3
