    Answer: (1) Rs.200
    Explanation:-

    Let be the C.P. of a black board = Rs.100
    He marks 20% above C.P.
    Then, the C.P. = 100 + 100 x 20/100 = 100 + 20 = Rs.120
    He gave 10% discount
    Then, the selling price = 120 – 120 x 10/100 = 120 – 12 = Rs.108
    the C.P of black board = 216 x 100/108 = Rs.200

    Hence, the C. P. of a black board is Rs.200.          Ans.
