# What will be the Profit/Loss of Shopkeeper? If

If a shopkeeper purchase cashewnut at Rs.250 per kg and sells it at Rs.10 per 50 grams, then he will have:

- 25 % profit
- 20% profit
- 20% loss
- 25 % loss

**Answer: (3) 20% loss
Explanation:-**

The Cost price of 1 kg cashewnut = Rs.250

The selling price of 50 g cashewnut = Rs.10

The selling price of 1 kg cashewnut = 20 x 10 = Rs.200

Loss = Cost price – Selling price

Loss = 250 – 200 = Rs.50

Loss% = Loss x 100/Cost price

Loss% = 50 x 100/250 = 20%

Hence, the answer is (3) 20% loss.
