    Answer: (4) 20%

    Explanation:-
    The cost price of one dozen orange = Rs. 10
    The selling price of one dozen orange = Rs.12

    Then, the profit = 12 – 10
     = Rs. 2

    The percentage of profit  = 2 x 100/10
     = 20%

    Then, his gain percent is 20%.

    Hence, the answer is (4) 20%.
