B IMO

CP of 1kg =10
CP of 1000gm=10
CP of 700 gm =(10/1000)*700=7
SP of 700 gm =13 ( 30 perfect + price tag he has put )
so profit
((13-7)/7)*100=600/7%

Explanation:
Given: CP of 1kg of wheat = 10
CP for 700 gm of Wheat = 10x700/1000 = 7
SP (30% from Buying Price) = 10x130/100 = 13
Profit = {(13-7)/7}*100={6/7} x 100 = 600/7

IMO-B
