Selling Price = Cost Price + Profit

or Selling Price = Cost Price – Loss

1 : “After selling the article, a loss of 25% on Cost Price incurred.”

SP = CP – 25 % of CP = CP – 0.25 * CP =>  SP = 0.75 * CP

2 : “The Selling Price is three-fourths of the Cost Price.”

SP = ¾ * CP => SP = 0.75 * CP

Equations from both the statements are the same. You need two different linear equations with the same variables to find a solution.

Therefore the answer is A.
