Option 4 : 1 : 1

**Given:**

Jiten sold an article G at a profit of 20%

The cost price of article G = Rs. 1200

Prem sold an article M for Rs. 1125 at a loss of 25%.

**Formula used:**

Cost price = Selling price - Profit

Profit% = \(\frac{Profit}{Cost price} × 100\)

**Calculation**

According to the question,

Let the selling price of Jiten be Rs. x

Then, Profit = x × (20/100) = x/5

Cost price = x - x/5 = 4x/5

Profit at cost price = \(\frac{x/5}{4x/5} × 100\) = 25%

Selling price of G = 1200 × 125/100 = Rs. 1500

Cost price of M = 1125 × 100/125 = Rs. 1500

Now, Cost price of M/Selling price of G = 1500/1500 = 1 : 1

**∴ The ratio of the cost price of article M to the selling price of article G is 1 : 1.**
