Answer: (1) 20%

Explanation:-
Let the cost price of an item = Rs. 100
A trader marks his items by increasing the price by 25%.
Then, the mark price of an item = 100 + 100 x 25/100 = 125

He gives 4% discount,
Then, the selling price of the item = 125 – 125 x 4/100
= 125 – 5
= 120

Then, the profit = 125 – 100 = 20%

Hence, the answer is (1) 20%.
