# A man bought a second hand scooter for Rs. 1200 and spent Rs. 200 on its repairs

A man bought a second hand scooter for Rs. 1200 and spent Rs. 200 on its repairs. He sold it for Rs. 1680. His gain percent is:

(a) 20%

(b) 10%

(c) 8%

(d) 16%

**Answer: (a) 20%**

**Solution:-**

A man bought a second hand scooter for Rs. 1200 and spent Rs. 200 on its repairs.

Then, the cost of scooter = 1200 + 200

= Rs. 1400

He sold scooter for Rs. 1680.

Then, Gain = 1680 – 1400

= Rs. 280

So, the percentage of gain = 280 x 100/1400

= 20%

Hence, the correct answer is option (a) 20%.
