Total Cost Price = Rs.1600
Cost Price for 1/4 of the items = 1600/4 = Rs.400
Cost Price for the remaining items = 1600-400=Rs.1200

Items worth of Rs.400 is sold at a loss of 20%
Total selling price of the above = 400 * 80/100 = Rs.320

He makes an overall gain of 10%
So his total selling price = 1600 * 110/100 = Rs.1760

Hence, he needs to sell the remaining 3/4 of the items at a cost of Rs.1760 - 320 = 1440
His gain = 1440 - 1200 = 240
Gain Percentage = 240*100/1200 = 20%

Solving it By rules of Alligation makes i simple and short:

           8% 18%
                     14%
   4%                 6%

Therefore,
Q of 8% : Q of 18% = 4/6 =2/3
Hence,
Q of 8% sugar sold is = 2/5 (1000) = 400

Assume cost price of 1Kg sugar is Rs.1

Then total cost price of 1000 Kg sugar = Rs.1000

Net profit is 14% . So his total selling price = 1000 * 114/100 = Rs.1140

Let x kg he sells at 8% profit and (1000-x) at 18% profit.
his total selling price = x * 108/100 + (1000-x)*118/100

x * 108/100 + (1000-x)*118/100 = 1140
108x + 118000 - 118x = 114000
4000  = 10x
x = 400

So he sells 400 kg for 8% profit.
