# Quant Quiz – Profit & Loss – 15

Hello and welcome to exampundit. Here is a set of Quantitative Aptitude Quiz on Profit & Loss problems.

Q:1- A manufacturer makes a profit of 15% by selling a Fridge for Rs.5750. If the cost of manufacturing increased by 30% and the price paid by the retailer is increased by 20%. Find the profit percent made by the manufacturer ?

1. 6 2/13%
2. 6 4/13%
3. 8%
4. 10%
5. None of these.

Option:Â 1

Explanation:Â Selling price of Fridge = Rs.5750
Cost price of Fridge =Rs.(100/115Ã—5750) = Rs.5000
New, CP = 130% of 5000 = Rs.6500
Price paid by the retailer = 120% of 5750
New SP = Rs.6900
Profit% = (400/6500Ã—100)%
= 6 2/13%.

Q:2- A man sells a TV set for Rs.3450 and makes a profit of 15%. He sells another TV set at a loss of 10%. If on the whole, he neither gains nor losses. Find the selling price of the second TV set ?

1. Rs.4250
2. Rs.4400
3. Rs.4050
4. Rs.4500
5. Rs.4555

Option:Â 3

Explanation:Â Selling price of TV =Rs. 3450
Profit = 15%
So, CP of TV = 100/115Ã—3450
= Rs.3000
Profit = Rs.450
450, should also be the actual loss on the 2nd TV.
Thus, the actual loss = Rs.450(10% of CP)
CP of the 2nd TV set =Rs.4500.
SP of 2nd Tv = Rs.4050.

Q:3-Deepak purchased a bike at 11/15â„Ž of its selling price and sold it at 15% more than its selling price. His gain is:

1. 25%
2. 50%
3. 56 9/11%
4. 60 9/11%
5. None of these.

Option:Â 3

Explanation:Â Let S.P. be Rs.x.
Then, Cost Price = Rs.11x/15
New selling price = 115% of Rs.x
= 115x/100
= 23x/20
Profit =Rs.(23x/20-11x/15)
= Rs.5x/12
Profit% = (5x/12 Ã— 15/11x Ã— 100)%
= 56 9/11%.

Q:4- A shopkeeper sold sarees at Rs.266 each after giving 5% discount on labelled price. Had he not given the discount, he would have earned a profit of 12% on the cost price. What was the cost price of each saree ?

1. Rs.230
2. Rs.240
3. Rs.250
4. Rs.260
5. None of these.

Option:Â 3

Explanation:Â Selling price of 1 saree =Rs.266
Let the labelled price of each saree be Rs.x.
Then, 95% of x = 266
X = Rs.(266Ã—100/95)
= Rs.280.
Now, S.P. = 280 and Profit = 12%
So, C.P. = Rs.(100/112Ã—280)
= Rs.250.

Q:5- A shopkeeper sold an article offering a discount of 5% and earned a profit of 23.5%. What would have been the percentage of profit earned if no discount was offered ?

1. 25%
2. 26%
3. 27%
4. 29%
5. 30%

Option:Â 5

Explanation:

Let C.P. be Rs.100.

Â Then, Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â S.P. = Rs.123.50

Let marked price be Rs.x.

Then, Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 95% of x = 123.50

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â X = Rs. 12350/95

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.130.

Now, selling price = Rs.130 , cost price = 100

Â Â So, Â Â Profit % = 30%.

Q:6- Rohan sold an article at a loss of 6Â½%. Had he sold it for Rs.250 more, he would
have gained 5Â½%. To gain 24Â½%, he should sell it for:

1. Rs.259 3 3/4
2. Rs.279 4 3/8
3. Rs.289
4. Rs.290
5. None of these.

Option:Â 1

Explanation:

Let c Â C.P. be Rs.x.

Then, (105Â Â½% of x) â€“ (93Â½% of x) = Rs.250

Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â½% 0f X =Rs.250

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â X=Rs.208 3Â 1/3

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Desired Â S.P. Â = 124Â½% of 208313

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.259 3Â 3/4.

1. 14 2/7%
2. 16 2/7%
3. 18%
4. 20%
5. None of these.

Option:Â 1

Explanation:

Total Selling Price =Rs.12000.

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Total Cost Price Â = Rs.12000 Â Â (No profit No loss)

Â Â Â Â Â Â S.P. of 1st commodity Â = Rs.6000

Â Â Â Â Profit of 1st commodity = 20%

Â Â Â Â Â C.P. of 1st commodity Â = Rs.(100/120Ã—6000)

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.5,000

Â Â C.P. of 2nd commodity Â = Rs.(12000-5000)

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.7000

Â Â S.P. of 2nd commodity = Rs.6000

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Loss % Â Â = Â 1000/7000 Ã—100

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = 14Â 2/7%.

2. Rs.12.45
3. Rs.13.16
4. Rs.14.16
5. None of these.

Option:Â 4

Explanation:

Total C.P. = Rs.(150Ã—120)

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.18,000

Â Total Â Â Â S.P. Â Â = Rs.(45Ã—140) + (85Ã—137) + (20Ã—109)

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â =Rs.(6,300 + 11,645 + 2,180)

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.20,125

Average Profit = Rs.(20,125 â€“ 18000)/150

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â =Rs.(2125/150)

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.14.16.

1. 6%
2. 7.5%
3. 9.5%
4. 11.5%
5. 15%

Option:Â 2

Explanation:

C.P. of Â¾th Â = Rs.(700Ã—Â¾)

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.525

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â C.P. of Â¼th Â Â = Rs.175

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Total Â Â S.P. = (85% of Rs.525 + 115% of Rs.175)

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.647.50

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Loss% = (52.5/700Ã—100)%

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = 7.5%.

1. 49%
2. 51%
3. 52%
4. 53%
5. 55%

Option:Â 4

Explanation:

C.P. = Rs.400

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Marked price = 180% of 400

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.720

Â Discount on M.P.=15%

So, Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â S.P. = 85% of Rs.720

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = Rs.612

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Profit % =( 212/400Ã—100)%

Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â = 53%.
