    Answer: (2) 17 %
    Explanation:-
    Let the cost price of the goods = Rs.100
    A  shop keeper marks his goods 30 % above the cost price.
    Then, the cost price = 100 + 100 x 30/100
    = 100 + 30
    = Rs.130

    He allows 10 % discount.
    Then, the selling price = 130  – 130 x 10/100
    = 130 – 13
    = 117
    The real profit = 117 – 100
    = 17 %
    Hence, the answer is (2) 17 %.
