The cost price of 1 apple = $$$frac{1}{10}\\$ or$0.10. Because Sam wishes to make a profit of 25%, selling price per apple should be 0.10 + 25% of 0.10 = 0.1 + 0.025 = $0.125. If the selling price of 1 apple is$0.125, the selling price of a dozen apples = 12 × 0.125 = $1.5 Selling price of a dozen apples is$1.5 ##### Choice D is the correct answer. ###### GMAT Online Course - QuantTry it free!
