    Let the CP of 1 orange be Rs x

    Then,

    CP of 16 oranges will be 16×x=16x

    And

    CP of 16 oranges=SP of 18 pens

    Hence,

    SP of 18 oranges =16x

    Then,

    SP of 1 orange=16x÷18=

    9

    8

    x

    Since, CP>SP, So

    Loss=CP−SP.=18x−16x=Rs2x

    Loss(%)=

    CP

    gain

    ×100

    Loss(%)=

    18x

    2x

    ×100=11

    9

    1

    %

    hence the answer is 1
