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

Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

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.(125x82500)/10= Rs. 1031250.

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