- 15
- 20
- 17
- 10

**Answer: (3) 17**

**Explanation:-
**Let the cost price of goods = Rs. 100

A dealer marks his goods 30% above cost price.

Then, the price of goods = 100 +100 x 30/100

= 100 + 30

= Rs. 130

He gave 10% discount,

Then, selling price = 130 – 130 x 10/100

= 130 – 13

= Rs. 117

Gain% = 117 – 100

= 17%

Then, his gain percent is 17%

Hence, the answer is (3) 17.
