CTS Aptitude Sample Question 1: Arun buys an old bicycle for Rs. 470 and spends Rs. 80 on its repairs. If he sells the bicycle for Rs. 580, his gain percent is:

A. 3.75%

B. 6.10%

C. 4.25%

D. 5.45%

Answer: D


Cost Price (C.P.) = Rs. (470 + 80) = Rs. 550.

Selling Price (S.P.) = Rs. 580.

Gain = (S.P.) - (C.P.) = Rs.(580 - 550) = Rs. 30.

Now Gain%= (Gainx100)/C.P.= (30x100) /550= 5.45%

The Principal of the college/ and the senior most chemistry faculty/ is on leave today.
