Common Information Question: 1/4

If ABC Ltd. makes a total profit of 20% in the year 2006, what is the profit percentage on the couriers sent by Air transport?









 Hide Ans

Option(A) is correct

The ratio of Total Revenue to Total cost for Air transport:

$= \dfrac{10R}{11C}$

Where $R$ is the Revenue Generated of the company.

$C$ is the Total Cost of the company.

If the profit % of the company is 20%, then

$\dfrac{R}{C} = 1.2$

So $\dfrac{\text{Total Revenue}}{\text{Total Cost}}$, for couriers sent through Air transport:

$= \dfrac{10}{11}×1.2$

$= 1.0909$

Hence, the profit % for couriers sent through Air transport, $= \textbf{9.09%}$
