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.
