    Answer: (2) 1% loss
    Explanation:-

    Let be the cost price is Rs.100
    A dealer marks 10% above cost price.
    Then, Selling price = 100 + 100 x 10/100 = 100 + 10 = Rs.110
    and he allows 10% discount
    Then, selling price = 110 – 110 x 10 /100
    = 110 – 11 = Rs.99

    Then, selling price = Rs.99
    Loss = 100 – 99 = 1%

    Hence, the answer is (2) 1% loss.
