a. 12%         b. 30%           c. 50%           d. 60%           e. None of these

1- (C)(Explanation:Let the S.P = 100 then C.P. = 25 , Profit = 75,
so Profit% = 75/25 * 100 = 300%
2-(B)
3-(D)
4-(C)(Explanation:As question states that rate was of pair of articles,
So rate of One article = 37.40/2 = Rs. 18.70
Let Marked price = Rs X then 85% of X = 18.70 => X = 1870/85 = 22
5-(B)(Explanation:Let the cost price = Rs 100 then, Marked price = Rs 135 Required gain = 8%,
So Selling price = Rs 108 Discount = 135 – 108 = 27, Discount% = (27/135)*100 = 20%
6-(D)(Explanation: 85 : 9 = 105 : x, x= (9?105/85) = Rs 11.81
7-(A)(Explanation: Suppose he bought 5 kg and 3 kg of tea,  Cost Price = Rs. (5 x 18 + 3 x 20) = Rs. 150.  Selling price = Rs. (8 x 21) = Rs. 168. Profit = 168 – 150 = 18,
So, Profit % = (18/150) * 100 = 12%
8-(D)(Explanation: Gain % = (164.36*100/2400) = 6.84 % = 7% approx
9-(B)(Explanation:Let the C.P. = x, Then S.P. = (120/100)x = 6x/5  New S.P. = 2(6x/5) = 12x/5
Profit = 12x/5 – x = 7x/5  Profit% = (Profit/C.P.) * 100 => (7x/5) * (1/x) * 100 = 140 %
10-(C)(Explanation:Friends, we know we will need gain amount to get gain percent, right.
So lets get gain first.
Let the cost price of 1 pen is Re 1  Cost of 8 pens = Rs 8 Selling price of 8 pens = 12
Gain = 12 – 8 = 4 Gain%=(GainCost*100)%=(48*100)%=50%
