By selling $33$ meters of cloth, one gains the selling price of $11$ meters. Find the gain percent :

1. $20 \%$
2. $40 \%$
3. $50 \%$
4. $22 \%$

Let the selling price of per meter cloth = Rs1

SP of 33m cloth = Rs33

Profit of 11m cloth i.e ( 11m* 1Rs/m=11Rs) = 11Rs

Profit = SP-CP i.e 11=33-CP so CP=22Rs

Now Profit percent = P/CP*100 = 11/22*100 = 50%

Thus "c" option is correct
