Solution

## The correct option is C ₹800, 16% Marked Price is the price labelled on any particular item / good. Selling Price is the price on which that particular item / good is sold. Discount = Marked Price - Selling Price In this question, Marked Price = ₹5,000 and Selling Price = ₹4,200. Discount = Marked Price - Selling Price ⇒ 5000 - 4200 = ₹800 ∴ Discount = ₹800 Discount Percentage = DiscountMarked Price× 100 ⇒ 8005000× 100 = 16 % ∴ Discount Percentage = 16 %
