Solution

## The correct option is C Rs. 1120Selling price = cost price + profit Shirt = 7y + x Coat = 12y + x Since, the profit is same, so the selling price of shirt will certainly be less than Rs. 2000 (which is half of the total value) as it is clear that cost price of shirt is less than the cost price of coat. Note: If selling price of shirt is equal to or greater than the selling price of coat then the C.P. of coat will be equale to or less than the C.P. of shirt which is wrong. Hence the only possible choice is (d).
