Raman plans to sell his goods at a loss of 8% but uses weights of 900 grams in place of a kg weight. Find his real loss or gain percent?

Options:

A . 3%

B . 20%

C . 10%

D . 2.22%

Answer: Option D : D Raman plans to sell his goods at a loss of 8%. Therefore, Selling Price =(100−8)% of CP = 0.92 CP. But, when he uses weights that measure only 900 grams while he claims to measure 1 kg.Hence, CP of 900gms =0.90×OriginalCP So, he is selling goods worth 0.90 CP at 0.92 CP Therefore, he makes a profit of 0.02 CP on his cost of 0.9 CP profit %=2.22%
