    Answer: (4) Rs. 5375
    Explanation:-
    Let be the original price of  a table set is Rs.X.
    Kumar bought 20 %  discount on its original price,
    Hence, the C P for Kumar = X x 80/100
    = 4 X/5
    He sold 5 % profit.
    Then, S. P . = 4 X/5 + 4 X x 5/100 x 5 = 4515
    4 X/5 + X/25 = 4515
    (20 X + X)/25 = 4515
    21 X = 4515 x 25
    X = 4515 x 25/21
    X = 5375
    Hence, the original price of a table set is (4) Rs.5375.
