    Answer: (3) Rs. 20000

    Explanation:-
    Let the labelled price be Rs. X.
    Meena bought 20 % on the labelled price.
    Then, the selling price of the mobile  = X x 80/100
    = Rs. 4 X / 5

    Meena sells it for Rs. 16800  and   Profit = Rs.800
    Then,  4 X / 5 + 800 = 16800
    (4 X + 5 x 800) / 5 = 16800
    4 X + 4000 = 16800 x 5
    4 X = 84000 – 4000
    4 X = 80000
    X = 80000/4
    X = 20000

    Then, the lebelled price of the mobile set was Rs.20000.

    Hence,the answer is (3) Rs. 20000.
