    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.
