    Answer: (3) Rs.87000
    Explanation:
    Let be the Cost price of a car = X
    According to the question,
    Rohit sold his car at 10% below the cost price to Amit = X x 90/100 = 9X/10
    Amit spent on repaired = Rs.5000
    Then, he sold the car to Rajesh at 20% above the total cost.
    Then, The S.P of car = (9X/10 + 5000) x 120/100 = 1, 00,000
    (9X + 50000) x 6/5 x 10 = 1, 00,000
    54X + 3, 00,000 = 50, 00,000
    54X = 50, 00, 00 – 3, 00,000
    X = 47, 00,000/54
    X = 87037
    The original price of the car = Rs.87, 000 (nearest to hundred)
    Hence, the answer is (3) Rs.87, 000.
