Explanatory Answer | GMAT Profit Loss Q11

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.
