Solution

## The correct option is C ₹1545.76Let the reduction given by shopkeeper be ₹ x. Reduced price of the article = ₹(16800 - x) Clearly, the reduced price of the article + GST on it should be = ₹18000 ⇒ ₹(16800 - x) + 18% of ₹(16800 - x) = ₹18000 On solving we get 16800−x+3024−18x100=18000 ⇒ 118x100=₹19824−₹18000=₹1824 ⇒x=₹1545.76 Hence, reduction given by the shopkeeper = ₹1545.76 Alternate method : Let the reduced price be ₹x Reduced Price + GST on it = ₹18000 x + 18% of x = ₹18000 ⇒ 118x100=₹18000 ⇒x=₹15254.24 Reduction given by the Shopkeeper = ₹16800 - ₹15254.24 = ₹1545.76
