    Answer: (1) Rs.840
    Explanation:-

    The selling price of an article = Rs.720
    Loss = 10 %.

    Then, cost price of an article = 720 x 100/90
    = Rs.800

    Gain = 5 %
    Then, the selling price of the article = 800  + 800 x 5 /100
    = 800 + 40
    = Rs.840

    Hence, the answer is (1) Rs.840.
