Answer: (3) 25%

Explanation:-
Cost price of a copy = Rs. 5
Therefore, the Cost price of 24 copy = 24 x 5 = Rs. 120

Selling price of a copy = Rs. 6
Therefore, the selling price  of 25 copies = 25 x 6
= Rs. 150
Profit = 150 – 120
= Rs. 30

Then, the profit percent = 30 x 100/120
= 10 x 10/4
= 25%

Then, the profit percent is 25%.

Hence, the answer is (3) 25%.
