Solution

The correct option is C ₹1545.76
Let 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

16800x+302418x100=18000

118x100=1982418000=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
