Option 3 : 40%

Given:

Five times of S.P = Three times of C.P

Formula used:

Loss % = (Loss/Cost Price) × 100

Loss = C.P - S.P

Calculation:

According to the question,

5S.P = 3C.P

⇒ S.P/C.P = 3/5

Let S.P be 3x and C.P be 5x

Loss = C.P - S.P

⇒ 5x - 3x

⇒ 2x

Loss % = (Loss/Cost Price) × 100

⇒ (2x/5x) × 100

⇒ (2/5) × 100

⇒ 40%

∴ The loss percent is 40%.
