A dishonest sugar merchant, while purchasing goods from the dealer, manages to receive 20% more sugar than the quantity of sugar he is supposed to receive. He later sells the sugar to his customers in such a way that for any customer, 30% of the sugar actually delivered must be added to get the original quantity of sugar asked for by the customer. The merchant sells the sugar to his customers at cost price (i.e., the price demanded by the dealer), but then charges them an additional amount claiming it as his transportation cost. If the additional amount that the merchant charges equals 10% of the cost that he incurred on the sugar that he is actually delivering to them, find his net gain percent. (Assume that the merchant's actual transportation cost is zero)

a) 66% b) 60% c)68% d) 71.6%...should n't answer be c) instead of a)....because the merchant actually delievering 120 kg?

This has to end!

its given that the merchant charges an additional amount of 10% of the COST that he incurred on sugar that he is actually delivering to his customers which is the CP he paid ie Rs. 10 and not Rs.12.

as it is transportation cost,120 kg transported, so it will be the  10% cost of 120 kg = 12 Tk

QA - 42C / 6W = 120

VA - 25C / 11W = 64

OA - 67C / 17W = 184.

Dismal VA Section. :/

OA- 7.78 percentile despite 100% accuracy 😛

A score of zero fetched me a percentile of 3.22 in VA/LR

Finally I get to know my sectionals 😃

QADI: 37C/40A = 108; 98.76%ile :( 

VALR: 28C/36A = 76; 98.63%ile 😞

Total: 65C/76A = 184; 99.31%ile; AIR 58 😐

Ironically enough, my highest ever AIMCAT score fetches me my lowest percentile and lowest AIR. So much for being honest 😔

Only 9K people gave the test !! So finally TIME's getting the treatment it deserves albeit at the cost of plummeting percentiles 😛
