    Answer: (4) Rs.7
    Explanation:-
    Let be the original price = Rs.X per Kg.
    Reduced price = 79X/100 per Kg
    100 x 100 /79X – 100/X = 3
    10000/79X – 100/X = 3
    (10000 – 7900 ) /79X = 3
    2100 = 3 x 79X
    X = 2100/3 x 79
    X = Rs.8.86 per kg.
    So, Reduced price = .79 x 8.86 = Rs.7 / kg.
    Hence, the answer is (4) 7.
