Answer: (2) 43%

Explanation:-
Let the price of a car be Rs. 100.
The price of a car is increased by 30%
Then, the price of the car = 100 + 100 x 30/100
= 100 + 30
= Rs. 130

it is increased again by 10%.
Then, the price of car = 130 + 130 x 10/100
= 130 + 13 = 43%
Total percentage increase in the price of car = 143 – 100
= Rs. 43

Hence, the answer is (2) 43%.
