    A dishonest shopkeeper pretends to sell his goods at cost price but uses false weights and gains 25%. For a weight of 1 kg he uses:

    A 800gms Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    B 600gms Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    C 500gms Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    D 750gms Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

    Solution

    Let the error be x gms. Then, => x/(1000-x) × 100 = 25 => x/(1000-x) = 25/100 => 4x = 1000 - x => 5x = 1000 => x = 200 Weight used = (1000 – 200) = 800gms
