    Answer:  (2) 400 Kg

    Explanation:-
    According to question,
     

    RE: What will be the quantity sold at 8% profit? If


    Therefore, the ratio of quantities of 8% profit and 18% profit = 4: 6
      = 2: 3
    Then, the quantity sold at 8% profit = 1000 x 2/5
     = 200 x 2
     = 400 kg

    Then, the quantity sold at 8% profit is 400 kg. 

    Hence, the answer is (2) 400 kg.
