A seller bought 2750 Mangoes and 1210 Apples at the same price. He sells in such a way that he can buy 406 Mangoes with the sale of 322 Mangoes and he can buy only 289 Apples with the sale of 391 Apples. Then what is the overall profit percentage made by him?

A. 0%

B. 90%

C. 80%

D. None

Answer: Option A

Solution(By Examveda Team)

Cost of 2750 Mangoes = 1210 Apples
Total cost = 2420 Apples
Given: 406 = 322(100+x/100)
x = 6/23%
Given: 289 = 391(100+y/100)
y = 6/23% loss
Overall profit:
2750 Mangoes*(100+6/23/100) +1210 Apples*(100-6/23/100) = 2420*Apples (100+P/100)
1210 Apples*(100+6/23/100) +1210 Apples*(100-6/23/100) = 2420*Apples (100+P/100)
P = 0%
