    Answer: (c) 20% 

    Solution:-
    If the ratio of the cost price and selling price of an article = 5: 6
    Let the cost price & selling price of an article be = 5 X & 6 X

    Then, Gain = 6 X – 5 X
    = X

    Percentage of gain = X x 100/5 X
    = 100/5
    = 20 %

    Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 20%.
