    Given that , Printed price = ₹ 900
    On 40% discount

    C.P. for retailer = 900 −
    900 × 40
    = 900 − 360
    100

    C.P. for retailer = 540
    ∴ S.P. = 900
    Profit = 900 – 540 = 360

    Correct Option: C

    Given that , Printed price = ₹ 900
    On 40% discount

    C.P. for retailer = 900 −

    100

    C.P. for retailer = 540
    ∴ S.P. = 900
    Profit = 900 – 540 = 360
    Gain % =
    360 × 100

    Here , CP of article = ₹ 39
    Suppose printed price = ₹ 100
    Discount = 21/2% = 2.5%
    ∴  S.P. = ₹ (100 – 2.5) = ₹ 97.5

    Correct Option: C

    Here , CP of article = ₹ 39
    Suppose printed price = ₹ 100

    100 × 39
    = ₹ 40
    97.5
