    Answer: (3) Rs. 500

    Solution:-
    Le the cost price of a radio be X.
    A radio is sold at a gain of 16%. If it had been sold for Rs. 20 more, 20% would have been gained.
    Then, (20 – 16) x X/100 = 20
    X x 4/100 = 20
    X /25 = 20
    X = 20 x 25
    X = 500

    Then, the cost price of a radio is Rs. 500.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (3) Rs. 500.
