A single-phase transformer has no-load loss of 64 W, as obtained from an open circuit test. When a short-circuit test is performed on it with 90% of the rated currents flowing in its both LV and HV windings, he measured loss is 81 W. The transformer has maximum efficiency when operated at 

(A) 50.0% of the rated current (B) 64.0% of the rated current (C) 80.0% of the rated current (D) 88.8% of the rated current
