6. Directions(6-10): The line graph below shows the percentage of discount offered on the market price of five articles in discount season by Shop A and Shop B resp. 7. Toast are marked 50% above their manufacturing cost. Shop B makes 20% profit on their purchase price by selling the article. Calculate the profit percentage of the manufacturer who sells the article to the shop.

50%
10%
25%
15%
Option E
Let the manufacturing cost of Toast be Rs.100.
Marked Price = 150% of 100 = Rs.150
Now, the discount offered by Shop B = 8%
SP of Toast = (92/100)*150 = Rs.138
ATQ, Purchase Price = (138/120)*100 = Rs.115
Profit = [(115-100)/100]*100 = 15%

8. Shop B marked the price 50% above the cost price on all the articles and if all the articles have the same cost price then on which article does he incur a loss?
Rs.3.2
Rs.1.2
Rs.5
Rs.2.5
None of these
Option D
Let the CP of all the articles be Rs.100.
MP of all the articles = 150% of Rs.100 = Rs.150
Discount on crockery = 30%
SP = (70/100)*150 = Rs.105
Discount on Toast = 8%
SP = (92/100)*150 = Rs.138
Discount on Pickles = 12%
SP = (88/100)*150 = Rs.132
