A retailer buys a radio for 225 Rs. His overhead expenses are 15 Rs. He sells the radio for 300 Rs. The profit per cent of the retailer is :
[A]$20\%$
[B]$33\frac{1}{3}\%$
[C]$25\%$
[D]$26\frac{2}{3}\%$

$\mathbf{25\%}$
Actual C.P. = 225 + 15 = 240 Rs.
Gain = 300 – 240 = 60 Rs.
∴ Gain per cent =
$= \frac{60}{240}\times 100 = 25\%$
Hence option [C] is the right answer.
