    Answer:  (1) Rs. 675

    Explanation:-
    The selling price of an article = Rs. 450
    Loss = 20%

    Then, the cost price of  an article = 450 x 100/80
     = Rs, 562.50

    Should I sell it to gain 20%,
    Then, the price of the article = 562.5 x 120/100
     = Rs. 675

    Hence, the answer is (1) Rs. 675.
