(1) The article was sold at 10 percent profit.
(2) Had the article been sold for \$150 more than what it was sold, the profit would have been 12 percent

St. 1 - 2 variables, hence eliminate A
St. 2 - 2 variables again, hence eliminate B

Combine both statements- atleast 1 variable is same in both of them, hence we are left with only 1 variable and 1 equation.
Ans. C, Easy Peasy
