### Solution:

Let the CP of first bullock be x
Gain = 25% of x SP = CP + gain =  Selling price of first bullock 24000,  CP of first bullock = Rs.19.200
Let the CP of second bullock be y
Loss percent = 20% SP = CP loss But SP = Rs.24000,  CP of second bullock = Rs.30000
CP of 2 bullocks = Rs.19200 + Rs.30000 = Rs.49200
SP of 2 bullocks = Rs.24000 2 = Rs.48000
Loss = CP SP = 49200 48000 = Rs.1200  Loss% = 2.4%
Hence option (A) is correct.
