QA – Placement Quizzes | Profit and Loss | Question 14

A fruit seller sells all his bananas at the cost price but gives 15% less bananas as he should give. Find his profit percentage?
(A) 17.64%
(B) 15.64%
(C) 18.60%
(D) 14.45%


Answer: (A)

Explanation: let 100 bananas are there.

Banans left = 15% = 15 bananas

So, bananas sold = 100-15 = 85

On 85 bananas sold, he gets 15 bananas as profit

Profit % = [bananas left / bananas sold]* 100 = [15/85]*100 = 17.64%
