    C)  20                               

    D)  22

    Correct Answer: A

    Solution :

    (a): Total \[C.P=80\times 13.5+120\times 16\] = 1080+1920 = 3000/- \[20%\text{ }gain\Rightarrow 3000\times 1.2=3600/-\] \[\therefore Total\text{ }rice=\left( 80+120 \right)kg=200kg\] \[\therefore \text{S}.P=\frac{3600/-}{200}Rs/kg=18Rs/kg.\]
