Solutions:
1. B) Let the CP of P = x; and then CP of R = x
SP of P = 2x × 6/10 = 1.2x; SPof R = 1.6x × 3/10 = 0.48x
Therefore, required % = (1.2x – 0.48x)/0.48x = 150%
2. A) Let CP of R = 100
Then MP = 160
Therefore, SP = 3/10 × 160 = 48
Loss % = 52/100 × 100 = 52%
If C.P = 100 × 110/100 = 100
Then loss = 62/110 × 100 = 56.36%
Therefore increase in loss = 4.36%
3. A) Let SP of  Q = x = SP of T
And CP of Q = a; CP of T = b
ATQ, 1.4Q × 70/100 = 2.2T × 40/100 => T : Q = 49 : 44
4. C) SP of P = 200/100 × P × 60/100 = 1.2P
Profit percentage of P = 20%
Profit % of Q = -2% (loss)
Profit % of R = -52% (loss)
Profit % of S = -40% (loss)
Profit % of T = -12% (loss)
So R has the highest loss percentage.
5. B) If MP is some, then the item whose marked up % with respect to CP is lowest, will have highest CP, So the item with 2nd highest CP is the item with second lowest marked up % with respect to CP i.e. Q.
6. c) A is a triangle.
Area of A = ½ × 16 × 12 = 96
Therefore, required cost = 96 × 50 = Rs.4800
7. A) Required difference = (2(15 + 15) × 18) – (2(20 + 10) × 15) = (60 × 18) – (60 ×  15) = 60 ×  3 = Rs.180
8. D) Required Ratio = (20 × 12) × 60 : 2 (20 + 12) × 25 = 14400 : 1600 = 9 : 1
9. D) Cost of fencing of E = 2 × 22/7 × 10 × 22 = 1382.85
Cost of flooring of C = 15 × 15 × 40 = 9000
Therefore, required % = 1382.85/9000 × 100 = 15.36%
10. B) Required % = 1080/1600 × 100 = 67.5%
