Best answer

**Answer: (3) 56.25 %**

**Explanation:-**

Pens are bought at 5 for Rs. 4.

Then, the cost price of 1 pen = 4/5

He sold at 4 pens for Rs.5,

Then, the selling price of 1 pen = 5/4

Profit = 5/4 – 4/5

= (25 – 16)/20

= 9/20

Profit % = 9 x 100 x 5/20 x 4

= 9 x 5 x 5/4

= 225/4

= 56.25 %

Hence, the answer is (3) 56.25 %.
