    Answer: (2) Loss of Rs. 52

    Explanation:-
    Sohan purchased  an item = Rs.6500
    Profit = 24 %
    Then, the selling price = 6500 x 124/100
    = Rs.8060
    Profit = 8060 – 6500
    = Rs.1560

    He purchased other item = Rs.8060
    Loss = 20 %
    Then, the selling price = 8060 x 80/100
    = Rs.  6448
    Loss = 8060 – 6448
    = Rs.1612

    Allover loss = 1612 – 1560
    = Rs.52.

    Then, the total loss is Rs. 52.

    Hence, the answer is (2) Loss of Rs.52.
