    A person buys some pencils at 5 for Rs. 1 and sells them at 3 for Rs. 1. Its gain per cent will be

    A)  \[66\frac{2}{3}%\]       

    B)  \[76\frac{2}{3}%\]

    C)  \[56\frac{2}{3}%\]                   

    D)  \[46\frac{2}{3}%\]

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    CP of one pencil \[=Rs.\frac{1}{5}\] and SP of one pencil \[=Rs.\frac{1}{3}\] \[\therefore \]      Gain \[=\frac{1}{3}-\frac{1}{5}=\frac{5-3}{15}=Rs.\frac{2}{15}\] \[\therefore \]      % Gain \[=\frac{\frac{2}{5}\times 100}{\frac{1}{5}}=\frac{200}{3}=66\frac{2}{3}%\]
