Solution

## The correct option is A 11.11%Given that, The cost price of 10 articles is equal to the selling price of 9 articles. Let the cost price of one article be ₹ x and the selling price of one article be ₹ y. ∴10x=9y x=9y10 Hence, selling price is more than cost price. So, there will be profit. Profit = S.P - C.P =₹(y−9y10) =₹y10 Profit % =ProfitC.P×100 =y109y10× 100 =19×100 =11.11% Hence, the profit percentage is 11.11%.
