    133 × 100
    = Rs. 140 i.e.,40% above than C.P.
    95

    Marked price of shirt
    = Rs. (576 + 109)
    = Rs. 685
    Let the rate of discount be x%.
    ∴ x % of 685 = 109

    ⇒ 
    685 × x
    = 109
    100

    ⇒  x =
    109 × 100
    = 16%
    685

    Correct Option: D

    Marked price of shirt
    = Rs. (576 + 109)
    = Rs. 685
    Let the rate of discount be x%.
    ∴ x % of 685 = 109

    ⇒ 
    685 × x
    = 109
    100

    ⇒  x =
    109 × 100
    = 16%
