    Answer: (3) Rs.900
    Explanation:-
    Let the selling price of an article is X
    The difference between the C P and S P of an article  =  Rs. 300
    Loss = 25 %
    Then, the loss = Rs. 300

    X x 100/75 = 300 + X
    4 X/3 = 300 + X
    4 X = 300 x 3 +  X x 3
    4 X = 900 + 3 X
    4 X – 3 X = 900
    X = Rs.900

    Then, the selling price of an article is Rs.900.

    Hence, the answer is (3) Rs.900.
