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
