D. Rs. 26,150Answer: Option CExplanation:Let the amount of Royalty to be paid for these books be Rs. r.

Then, 20 : 15 = 30600 : r => r = Rs. (30600×15)/20

= Rs. 22,950.

9.The price of the book is marked 20% above the C.P. If the marked price of the book is Rs. 180, then what is the cost of the paper used in a single copy of the book?


A. Rs. 36
B. Rs. 37.50
C. Rs. 42
D. Rs. 44.25Answer: Option B


Clearly, marked price of the book = 120% of C.P.

Also, cost of paper = 25% of C.P

Let the cost of paper for a single book be Rs. n.

Then, 120 : 25 = 180 : n => n = Rs. (25×180)/120

= Rs. 37.50 .




10.If 5500 copies are published and the transportation cost on them amounts to Rs. 82500, then what should be the selling price of the book so that the publisher can earn a profit of 25%?


A. Rs. 187.50
B. Rs. 191.50
C. Rs. 175
D. Rs. 180 

Answer: Option A


For the publisher to earn a profit of 25%, S.P. = 125% of C.P.

Also Transportation Cost = 10% of C.P.

Let the S.P. of 5500 books be Rs. x.

Then, 10 : 125 = 82500 : x => x = Rs.(125×82500)/10= Rs. 1031250.

Therefore S.P. of one book = Rs. 1031250/5500= Rs. 187.50 .
