A sells a scooter priced ₹ 36,000. He gives a discount of 8% on the first ₹ 20,000 and 5% on the next ₹ 10,000. How much discount can he offered on the remaining ₹ 6,000 if he is to get as much as when 7% discount is allowed on the total ?

 5%
 6%
 7%
 8%
Correct Option: C
As per the given in question ,
SP of scooter = ₹ 36,000 , discount = 7%
Discount on ₹ 36000 =  = ₹ 2520  
100 
Discount on first ₹ 20,000 =  = ₹ 1600  
100 
Discount on next ₹ 10,000 =  = ₹ 500  
100 
∴ Discount on remaining ₹ 6,000 = 2520 – (1600 + 500) = ₹ 420
∴ Required percent =  = 7%  
6000
