Option 1 : 200%, more

**Calculation:**

Let the cost price be Rs. 100

According to the question:

Selling price of A = 100 × 125/100 = Rs. 125

Selling price of B = 125 × 160/100 = Rs. 200

Loss of B = 33.33% = 100/3%

Cost price of B = (200 × 100)/(100 - 100/3) = (200 × 100 × 3)/200 = Rs. 300

Clearly, Cost price of B is more = 300 - 100 = Rs.200

Required% = 200/100 × 100 = 200%

**∴ Cost price of an article B is 200% percent more than the cost price of an article A.**
