Cost price of $1$ kg tomatoes (if purchased from A)
$=25$

Cost price of $1$ kg tomatoes (if purchased from B)
$=\dfrac{20}{1.5}=\dfrac{40}{3}$

So, loss in purchasing $1$ kg tomatoes from vendor A
$=25-\dfrac{40}{3}=\dfrac{35}{3}$

Required loss percentage
$=\dfrac{\left(\dfrac{35}{3}\right)}{25}×100=\dfrac{140}{3}\%$
