Solution

The correct option is C Rs. $$600$$
Let the Marked price be $$ x $$
After $$ 10 $$ % discount, the Selling price becomes $$ 0.9 x$$
After further $$ 15 $$ % discount, the selling price becomes $$ 0.85 \times 0.9x = 0.765x $$
Given, SP $$ = Rs 459 $$
$$ => 0.765 = Rs 459 $$
$$ => x = Rs  600 $$
Hence, marked price is $$ Rs  600 $$
