    = (35 – 2.5)% = 32.5%
    ∴  S.P. of Television = (100 – 32.5)% of Rs. 2300
    = Rs.
    2300 × 67.5
    = Rs. 1552.50

    Cost of books = Rs. 1500
    Discount per cent = 15%
    ∴  Their S.P. = 85% of 1500

    = Rs.
    1500 × 85
    = Rs. 1275
    100

    Correct Option: C

    Discount given
    = Rs. (540 – 496.80)
    = Rs. 43.20
    If the rate of discount be x%, then
    x% of 540 = 43.20

    ⇒ 
    540 × x
    = 43.20
    100

    ⇒  x =
    43.20 × 100
    = 8%
    540

    Correct Option: C

    Discount given
    = Rs. (540 – 496.80)
    = Rs. 43.20
    If the rate of discount be x%, then
    x% of 540 = 43.20

    ⇒ 
    540 × x
    = 43.20
    100

    ⇒  x =
    43.20 × 100
    = 8%
