    Answer: (2) 20%

    Explanation:-
    Let the cost price of an article be Rs.1
    Then, the cost price of 15 articles = Rs. 15 

    Selling price of 15 article = Rs. 18
    Profit = 18 – 15
     = Rs. 3

    So, the percentage of profit = 3 x 100/15
     = 20%

    Then, gain percent is 20%. 

    Hence, the correct is option (2) 20%.
