Solution(By Apex Team)

To get 20% profit on whole,
1000(CP) ⇒ 20%(gain) ⇒ 1200(SP)
Total Profit = 1200 – 1000 = Rs. 200
400 ⇒ 10%(gain) ⇒ 440
He gets Rs. 40 profit on 400
Rest Profit = 200 – 40 = 160
Then he must get Rs. 160 as profit on Rs. 600
Hence, % profit
$\begin{array}{l}
=\Large\frac{160 \times 100}{600} \\
=\Large\frac{80}{3} \\
=26 \Large\frac{2}{3} \%\end{array}$
