Solution

## The correct option is C ₹ 10000 Let the MP be ₹ x After first discount of 10% we get : x−10x100 = 90x100 After second discount of 10% we get : 90x100 −(10100×90x100) = 81x100 After third discount of 20% we get : 81x100 −(20100×81x100) = 64.8x100 As per problem, 64.8x100 = ₹ 6480 ⇒x = ₹ 10000
