Solution

The correct option is A 200
CP of shirt = Rs. 50

SP of shirt at 12 percent profit = Rs. 56
CP of pant = Rs. 90

SP of pant at 10% profit = Rs. 99

Let the amount of shirt material sold be 3x and pant material be 2x.

So, 3x(56)+2x(99)=36600
168x+198x=36600

366x=36600
x=100

Amount of trouser material =2x=200 mts.
