    Answer: (3) 17 %
    Explanation:-
    Let the original price be Rs.100
    Suresh bought an oven at 10% discount on its original price.
    Then, the C. P . for Suresh = 100 – 100 x 10/100 = 100 – 10 = 90
    He sold 30 % increase on the C. P .,
    Then, the S. P . of the oven = 90 + 90 x 30/100
    = 90 + 27
    = 117
    The profit = 117 – 100 = 17 %
    Hence, the answer is (3) 17%.
