Option 3 : 50%

**Given:**

S.P of 1 dozen bananas = Rs. 48

Profit % = 20%

**Formula used:**

C.P = (100 × S.P)/(100 + P%)

Profit = S.P - C.P

**Calculation:**

C.P = (100 × 48)/(100 + 20)

⇒ C.P (100 × 48)/120

⇒ C.P = Rs. 40

Now, he had sold them for Rs. 60/dozen

Profit = S.P - C.P

Profit = Rs. (60 - 40) = Rs. 20

Profit % = (20/40) × 100 = 50%

**∴ The profit % is 50%.**
