**Ans: a**

The cost of the first item is 780 × $100/{100 + 30}$ which is Rs. 600. The cost of the second item is 375 × $100/{100 - 25}$ which is Rs. 500. The combined cost is 600 + 500 = Rs. 1100. The combined sale is 780 + 375 = Rs. 1155. The profit percent is 100 × ${1155 - 1100}/1100$, which is 5%.
