Recently, while shopping in Meena Market in Lucknow, I came across two new pairs of trousers selling at a discount. I decided to buy one of them for my little boy Sherry. The shopkeeper offered me the first pair of trousers for ₹ 42 and said that they usually sold for 8/7 of that price. He then offered me the other pair of trousers for ₹ 36 and said that they usually sold for 7/6 of that price. Of the two pairs of trousers which one do you think is a better bargain and what is the percentage discount on it?
- A. First pair of trousers, 12.5%
- B. Second pair of trousers, 14.28%
- C. Both are the same
- D. None of these
