c)Company d)all of three got the same profit

Company's profit percentage = (80-64)/64 = 25%

Same calculation for profit of others ==> Company got the highest profit

a) Dealer
b) Shopkeeper
c) Company
d) all of three got the same profit

Answer to 2 should be "B" because profit, not profit percent, is asked.

Company's profit= 80-64=16
Dealers's profit= 98-80=18
Shopkeeper's profit= 120-98=22

22>18>16

Ans: "B"
