I think the answer will be like this...

Cost of 2 sarees- Rs.2185
on 1 saree 5% loss and another 15% gain

So,
      P=(SP+P/100)
     
      (100+15/100)x2185
       115/100x2185
     = Rs.2512.75

L =(SP-L/100)

     (100-5/100)x2185
      95/100x2185
    =Rs.2075.75
 therefore 2512.75-2185= Rs.327.75

 P% = 327.75/2185x100
      = 14.9%
