Answer: (4) Decrease the price by 10%
Explanation:-
Let  be the price of an portion = Rs.100
Raise 20%
Then,
Price = 100 + 100 x20/100 = 100 + 20
= 120
He gave 20% discount
Then, Price = 120 x 25/100 = 30
thus, price of portion = 120 – 30 = 90
Decrease the price = 100 – 90 = 10%
Hence, the answer is (4) Decrease the price by 10%.
