Solutions
S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let us assume B = 100, then A = 125
Now, B is 25 less than A.
Percentage of B is less than A = 25/125 × 100 = 20%
S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. CP × 1.25 = SP
So, CP = SP/1.25 = 125/1.25 = Rs. 100

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let initial Amount = Rs. 100
Money left = 100 – (20 + 10 + 9 + 7)
= Rs. (100 – 46)
= Rs. 54
This 54r = 2700
r = 50
100r = 5000
