1.   A man purchases 10 Cows at Rs. 3000 each. 1 Cow died. He sold 2 Cows at 5% loss, at what rate he should sale the remaining Cows, so as to gain a Profit of 10 % on the total Cost?

Rs.4000
Rs.3000
Rs.3900
Rs. 4500

```Answer

Answer: Option  C Explanation:Selling Price With Profit of 10 %  of total cost = 3000*10*110/100= 33000
Selling Price of 2 cows with 5% loss= 6000*95/100= 5700
Difference = 33000-5700= 27300;
So rate of the cows for selling to gain 10% profit on total = 27300/7= Rs. 3900
(because 1 cow died so remaining= 10-1-2=7) ```

2.  A person sold his watch for Rs. 24. If the percentage of his loss was equal to the cost price , then the watch would have cost him

Rs. 40
Rs. 60
Rs. 50
None of these

```Answer

Answer: Option  D Explanation:SP = Rs. 24
Let CP be X hence, Loss% = X
(X-SP)*100/X = X or (X-24)*100/X = X
X^2-100X+2400 = 0
(X-60)(X-40) = 0
X= 60 or 40 ```
