    Given that , Marked price of fan = ₹ 150 , discount = 20%

    S.P. of the fan =
    150 × 80
    = ₹ 120
    100

    We can find the required answer with the help of given formula :
    M.P. = ₹ 150, D = 20%, S.P. = ?
    M.P. =
    S.P. × 100
    100 − D

    Correct Option: C

    Given that , Marked price of fan = ₹ 150 , discount = 20%

    S.P. of the fan =
    150 × 80
    = ₹ 120
    100

    We can find the required answer with the help of given formula :
    M.P. = ₹ 150, D = 20%, S.P. = ?
    M.P. =
    S.P. × 100
    100 − D

    150 =
    S.P. × 100
    100 − 20

    S.P. =
    150 × 80
    100

    ∴ S.P. = ₹ 120
