    Answer: (3) 0.25 %
    Explanation:-
    A man sells two watches for ·3,200/- each.
    On one he gains 5% ,
    Then, the Cost price of one watch = 3200 x 100/105
    = Rs.3047.61
    On the other he losses 5 %.
    Then, the cost price of other watch = 3200 x 100/95
    = Rs.3368.42
    The, the cost price of both watch = 3047.61 + 3368.42
    = Rs.6416
    The selling price of both watches = 3200 + 3200
    = Rs.6400

    Loss = 6416 – 6400
    = Rs.16

    Loss % = 16 x 100/6416
    = 0.25 %
    Hence, the answer is (3 ) 0.25 %.
