## Answers With Solution:

__1. Ans. D.__

__Solution:__

C.P. of rice = 25/125×100

=20 Rs. per kg.S.P. – C.P. = Profit

(150×25+180×20×120% - x×90%×20) – [(150+180+x)×20] = 1230

3750+4320-18x – [(330+x)×20] = 1230

8070-18x – 6600-20x = 1230

-2x = 1230+6600-8070

2x = 240

X = 120 kg.

__2. Ans. B.__

__Solution:__

The rice that is sold at a loss of 10% is 120 kg.

150+180+120 = 450 kg.

__3. Ans. C.__

__Solution:__
Profit = 150×20×25%+180×20×20%+120×20×10%

=750+720+240

=1710

Old profit = 1230

Difference= 1710-1230

=480 Rs.

=750+720+240

=1710

Old profit = 1230

Difference= 1710-1230

=480 Rs.

__4. Ans. A.____Solution:__
Total rice = 120+150+180

=450 kg.

New profit = 450×20×20%
