Answer: (2) Rs. 4

Explanation:-
Let the price a mango = Rs. X
Profit = 25%
Then, the selling price of a mango = 125 X/100
= 5 X/4
According to the question,
150 X/100 – 125 X/100 = 1
6 X/4 – 5 X/4 = 1
(6X – 5 X)/4 = 1
X/4 = 1
X  = 4

Then, the first price of a mango is Rs. 4.

Hence, the answer is (2) Rs. 4.
