**Answer: (2) 56.25%**

**Explanation:-
**The cost price of 10 article = Rs. 8

Then, The cost price of 1 article = 8/10 = 4/5

The selling price of an article = Rs. 1.25

Then, the selling price of 10 article = 10 x 1.25

= Rs. 12.50

Profit = 12.50 – 8.00

= Rs. 4.5

Profit % = 4.5 x 100/8.00

= 45 x 5/4

= 225/4

= 56.25%

Then, the percentage of profit is 56.25%.

Hence, the answer is (2) 56.25%.
