Answer:Answer would be None of these

Step-by-step explanation:Here is the solution

Answer:Answer

Let cost price of 1g sugar be Rs.1

Assume he sells 1000g sugar.

Since he uses false weight he actually sells only 950 g sugar.

Therefore actual cost price for him is Rs.950.

Selling price =Rs.1000.

Profit percentage=

950

(1000−950)

×100

=

19

100
