How quantity ratio is obtained??

A man purchased some lemons and sold at 20 for rs.160 at 20% loss. If he want 20% profit then how many lemons should he sell for rs 240 ?

Price =80:120=2:3
Quantity =3:2
3--->=20
2---->40/3
160--->=40/3
1---->=1/12
240---->=240*/12=20

That result gets 0% profit, it isn't possible to get 20% with that selling price as it is 20% (the purchase price is 200). I suspect the question is worded wrong.
