B

C
Rs. 600

D
Rs. 900

Solution

The correct option is A Rs. $$750$$
Let the C.P. be Rs. $$x$$. 
Then, $$900 - x = 2(x - 450)$$
$$\Rightarrow 900-x=2x-900$$
$$\Rightarrow 3x=1800$$
$$\Rightarrow x=600$$
i.e., C.P. $$=$$ Rs. $$600$$, Profit $$= 25$$ $$\%$$
$$\therefore$$ S.P. of the article $$=$$ Rs. $$\left (\dfrac {600\times 125}{100}\right )=$$ Rs. $$750$$.
