    Answer: (a) 5000

    Solution:-
    Let the  retail rate be Rs. X
    After the reduction of 8% on retail rate, the  price of radio is Rs. 4600.

    Then, X x (100 – 8)/100 = 4600
    X x 92/100 = 4600
    X = 4600 x 100/92
    X = 5, 000

    Then, the retail rate of radio is Rs. 5, 000. 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (a) 5, 000.
