A Rs.550 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
B Rs.485 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
C Rs.525 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
D Rs.400 Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
E None of these Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

C.P of 1st item = 2800 × `100/140` = Rs. 2,000 C.P of 2nd item = 2800 × `100/70` = Rs. 4,000 ∴ Total C.P = Rs. 6,000 and Total S.P = Rs. 5,600 ∴ Loss = 6,000 – 5,600 = Rs. 400
