Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : 12.5%

Given:

Discounted price = Rs 22,500

Discount percent = 20%

Loss percent = 10%

Formula used 

Discount% = (discount/MP) × 100 

Loss% = (loss/CP) × 100 

Calculation: 

80% of MP = 22500

⇒ MP = 22500 × 100 / 80 = 28125

For cost price (CP) ,

Loss = CP – SP

⇒ 10% of CP  = CP – 22500

⇒ 9 CP = 225000

⇒ CP = 25000

Profit = MP – CP = 28125 – 25000 = 3125 Rs

So, profit percent = 3125 × (100/25000) = 12.5%

∴ The required answer is 12.5%
