Solution

The correct option is D 25%
Let the cost price (CP) of 15 articles be ₹100
CP of 1 article = ₹10015
Selling price (SP) of 12 articles = ₹100
SP fo 1 article = ₹10012
SP > CP

Profit on 1 article = ₹ 1001210015

= ₹ 50040060

= ₹ 10060

Profit percent = ProfitCP×100

= 1006010015×100

= 10060×1510×100

= 25%
Hence, profit = 25%
