- Rs 3,300

Option 2 : Rs 3,000

**Given:**

Profit percentage during the year = 26%

**Concept:**

Revenue = Expenditure + Profit

Profit % = \(\dfrac{Profit}{Revenue} × 100\)

**Calculation:**

Total expenditure = 70 + 450 + 320 + 160 + 900 + 320 = 2220

Let the total revenue = R and profit = P

⇒ R = 2220 + P

Profit % = \(\dfrac{Profit}{Revenue} × 100\)

⇒ 26 = \(\dfrac{P}{2220 + P} × 100\)

⇒ 26 × 2220 + 26P = 100P

⇒ 74P = 26 × 2220

⇒ P = 780

**∴ Revenue for the year = 2220 + 780 = Rs 3000.**
