Expert Answer:

 
Cost Price = 25 × 9.60 = Rs. 240
 
Total Number of eggs = 25 × 12 = 300
 
30 eggs are broken.
 
So, the number of eggs in the good condition = 300 - 30 = 270
 
Selling price = 270 × 1 = Rs. 270    .... ( Selling price of one egg = Re. 1)
 
S.P>C.P
 
Profit = 270 - 240 = Rs. 30
 
Profit% = (30/240)×100 = 12.5%
