20% Profit
Data insufficient
Solution:
CP = MP = 350
SP = 350 * 90/100 = 315
Loss% = (350 – 315)/350 * 100 = 10%

2. The Cost price of item A is same as the cost price of item B. If the seller decides to mark the price 7% more than the Cost price, then how much discount should he offer so that he makes no profit or loss on selling the item?
6.54%
5.54%
6.14%
5.64%
Data insufficient

Solution:
Let the discount offered be ‘x’ %
MP = 107/100 * 100 = 107
SP is same as CP,
100 = 107/100 * (100 – x)
100 – x = 93.45
x = 6.54%
3. What is the Cost price of item C?
Rs 100
Rs 120
Rs 150
Rs 200
Data insufficient

Solution:
SP = 220 * 80/100 = 176
CP = 176 * 100 / (100+17.34)
CP = 150
