@Zax.

When stock is purchased, the brokerage is added to the cost price.

Brokerage value calculated on the market value. Am I right?

Market value includes brokerage amount if given, whereas cost price never includes brokerage value because of this we need to add in case of this problem. Anyone clarify it.

Cost price=money with which we purchase or buy.

If the brokerage is mentioned, then we need to add brokerage to the selling price.
Here ,selling price=100- 4=96.
(4% discount).
Brokerage = 1/4 = .25.
Cost price = 96 + 0.25 = 96.25.

@Kinjal.

Since it is Cost price, we consider it as being purchased.

There is no mention of stock being purchased in the question, so why is the brokerage added to the cost price!

Why is brokerage added in 13 and deducted in 14?
