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.
