Solution

The correct option is A

Rs. 36


Printed price of mobile is ₹  2000.

Discounted price=  2000 ×70100 = ₹ 1400

Tax paid by Apurva = ₹ 1400 ×6100 = ₹ 84

 Apurva sells the mobile on its printed price which is equal to the the cost price of the camera for the buyer.

So, the cost price of mobile for buyer = ₹ 2000

Sales tax paid by the buyer

= ₹. 6% of ₹ 2000

= 6100×2000

= ₹ 120.

VAT paid by Apurva

= Sales tax charged by her – Sales tax paid by her

= ₹ 120 – ₹ 84

= ₹ 36
