    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%.
