a. Rs. 800
b. Rs. 950
c. Rs. 1100
d. Rs. 1040

ANSWER: Rs. 800
 
Cost price of article = Rs. 600
Profit % = 20%
Therefore,
selling price of article = 120% of C.P.
= (120 / 100) * 600 = Rs. 720
Marked price = ?
Discount % = 10%
S.P. = Rs. 720
90% of M.P. = S.P.
90/100 * M.P. = 720
M.P. = 720 * (100/90) = Rs. 800
