 Next Question
Answer: Option D
: D

Raman plans to sell his goods at a loss of 8%. Therefore, Selling Price =(1008)% 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%
