1.  The cost price of 20 articles is the same as the selling price of x articles. If the profit is 25%, then the value of x is:
2.  A. 15 B. 16 C. 18 D. 25

Explanation :

Let C.P. of each article be Re. 1 C.P. of x articles = Rs. x.

S.P. of x articles = Rs. 20.

Profit = Rs. (20 - x).

 [ $$\frac { 20-X } { X }$$] x 100 = 25

2000 - 100x = 25x

125x = 2000

x = 16.
