Answer: (4) None of these.
Explanation:-

Cost price of 6 articles = Rs.5
Then, cost price of 1 article = 5/6

Selling price of 5 articles = Rs.6
Then, the selling price of 1 article = 6/5

Profit = 6/5 – 5/6
= (36 – 30)/30
= 6/30 = 1/5
Profit% = (1/5) x 100/(5/6)
= 6 x 100/25
= 24 %

Hence, the profit % is 24%.
