Solution

## The correct option is B ₹ 7080 The cost of the shirt = ₹ 2000 Sales tax on shirt is charged at 5 %  Hence the total amount spent on the  shirt = 2000 + 5100× 2000                                                    = ₹ 2000 + 100                                                    = ₹ 2100 The cost of the bags  = ₹ 1800 Sales tax on bags is charged at 12 %  Hence the total amount on bags = 1800 + 12100× 1800                                                    = ₹ 1800 + 216                                                    = ₹ 2016 The cost of the Miscellaneous items = ₹ 2850 Sales tax on Miscellaneous items is charged at 4 %  Hence the total amount on Miscellaneous items = 2850 + 4100× 2850                                                                               = ₹ 2850 + 114.0                                                                                = ₹ 2964 Hence the total amount paid = 2100 + 2016 + 2964                                               = ₹ 7080
