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.
