### Question

A loss of 35% is made by selling an article at Rs. 195. What is the cost of the article?

**A**

300.

**B**

310.

**C**

320.

**D**

295.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Build it like this: if the sale is 100 - 35 = 65, the cost is Rs. 100. So, when the sale is 195 the cost should be ${100/65} × 195$ = Rs. 300.
