Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : 130

Given 

Shopkeeper pay per pen is Rs 10 

Formula used 

Profit = SP – CP,

Profit % = Profit/CP × 100,

Where,

SP is selling price,

CP is cost price,

Calculation 

We have profit % = 100%,

⇒ 100 = (10 – CP/CP) × 100

⇒ CP = 10 – CP 

⇒ 2CP = 10 

⇒ CP = Rs. 5

Profit = 10 – 5 = Rs. 5

So he earns profit of Rs. 5 on one pen.

To gain Rs. 650,

⇒ 650/5 = 130

∴ He should sell 130 pens to gain profit of Rs. 650.
