4. An item was sold for Rs.27.50 with a profit of 10%. If it was sold for Rs.25.75, what would have been the percentage of profit or loss?
1. 3%
2. 2%
3. 4%
4. 5%

Explanation :-

S.P    = Rs.27.50
Then
Profit= 10%
So, C.P = Rs.(100/110 x 27.50)= Rs.25.
when S.P = Rs.25.75
Profit    = Rs.(25.75 – 25) = Rs.0.75.
Profit % = (0.75/25×100)% =3%.
