Let Haider has x rupees

First year = x + 25% of x 

                 =  x + (25/100)* x 

                 =  (125/100)x

Next year = (125/100)x – 20% of (125/100)x

                  = (125/100)x – (20/100)* (125/100)x

                  = 100x/100 = x 

The rupees after  second year= x, so total loss 0%
