Rahul manages to get the discount of 5% on the actual saleprice of the mobile and he paid the shopkeeper Rs. 3325 without tax.

    875
    800
    858
    880
    825
    Option A
    CP = 100, SP (with tax) = 120
    New SP = 100 – 5 = 95
    Effective discount = 120 – 95 = 25
    So, at SP of 95 —-> discount = 25
    And at SP of 3325 —–> discount = 25/95×3325 = 875
