    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 %.
