Correct Answer - Option 1 : Quantity A > Quantity B

GIVEN:

M.P = Rs 24000

Discount in first case = 35%

Discount in second case = 20% + 15%

FORMULA USED:

S.P = M.P × (100 - Disc.)%

CALCULATION:

S.P 1 = 24000 × 65/100

⇒ Rs 15600

S.P 2 = 24000 × 80/100 × 85/100

⇒ 24 × 8 × 85 = Rs 16320

Required difference = Rs 720

∴ Quantity A > Quantity B
