a. 40 b.60. c.50 d.70
Let the cost price for A is Rs ‘y’. A earns a profit of 4% of his cost price
So, the sale price at which A sold table to B is 26y/25. So, now it will stand as cost price for B.

Cost price of B
Sale price by B at which he sold table is Rs. 65 i-e
Profit earned by B is 25% of his cost price i-e
