Best answer

**Answer: (3) Rs. 1250**

**Explanation:-**

**Given-**

Let be the market price of an article = Rs.X

The cost price of an article = Rs.900

According to the question,

X x 90/100 = 900 + 900 x 25/100

9 X/10 = 900 + 225

9 X = 10 x (900 + 225)

X = 10 x 1125/9

X = 1250

Hence, the cost price of an article is Rs.1250.
