    Answer: (C) 6,423.90
    Explanation:-
    The market price of a double bed = Rs.7500
    He gave successive discounts = 8%, 5% and 2%
    Then, the selling price = 7500 x (100 – 8) x (100 – 5) x (100 – 2)/100 x 100 x 100
    = 7500 x 92 x 95 x 98/100 x 100 x 100
    = 75 x 92 x 19 x 98/20 x 100
    = 15 x 46 x 19 x 49/5 x 20
    = 6423 . 9
    Hence, the net selling price is Rs.5,423.90
