**Answer:** Option **
A **

**Explanation:**

According to the question,

SP of 25 m of cloth – CP of 25 m of cloth = SP of 5 m of cloth

∴ CP of 25 m of coth = SP of 20 m of cloth

To solve this question, we can apply a short trick approach

**If the cost price of x articles is equal to the selling price of y articles, then the profit percentage = ** |
**x – y** |
**× 100%.** |

**y** |

x is the number of articles the cost price of which is given = 25

y is the number of articles the selling price of which is given = 20

By the short-trick approach, we get

Profit percent = |
25 – 20 |
× 100 = |
5 |
× 100 = 25% |

20 |
