    Answer: (4) Rs. 360 

    Explanation:-

    Let the amount of actual bill be = Rs. X

    Discount = 15% Or Rs. 54
    Then, X x 15/100 = 54
    3 X/20 = 54
    X = 54 x 20/3
    X = 18 x 20
    X = Rs. 360

    Then, the actual amount of bill is Rs. 360.

    Hence, the answer is (4) Rs. 360.
