Solution

The correct option is A

60, 45


i) When there is an increase in 20% of the price, the increase in price is:
= 20100×50=10
Therefore, the new petrol price is: ₹ (50 + 10) = ₹ 60

ii) When there is a decrease in 10% of the price, the decrease in price is:
= 10100×50=5
Therefore, the new petrol price is: ₹ (50 - 5) = ₹ 45
