(a) Rs. 200
(b) Rs. 180
(c) Rs. 225
(d) Rs. 175

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the quantity of rice be x quintal
C.P. = Rs. 150x
Spoiled rice = 10% of x = x/10
Rice to be sold = 9x/10 quintals
% Profit = 20%
S.P. = 150x├Ч120/100=Rs.180 x

(a) 960 gm.
(b) 940 gm.
(c) 920 gm.
(d) 900 gm.

S2. Ans.(d)

On 1 gm he earns x/(100-x)
On 100 he earns x/(1000-x)├Ч100=100/9
9x = 1000тАУx
X = 100 gm
So, he uses of weight = 1000- 100 = 900 gm
