- 0.30%
- 0.20%
- 0.25%
- None of these

**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 %.
