Best answer

Answer: (4) 10.5 %
Explanation:-
Let the cost price of goods = Rs.100
A tradesman marks  30 % above the cost price.
Then, the price of a goods = 100 + 100 x 30/100
= 100 + 30
= Rs.130
He gave 15 % discount,
Then, the selling price = 130 – 130 x 15/100
= 130 – 19.5
= Rs.110.5
Profit % = 110.5 – 100
= 10.5 %
Hence, the answer is (4) 10.5 %.
