    Answer: (1) Rs. 5, 700

    Explanation:-
    Cost price of a mobile phone = Rs. 8, 000
    A shopkeeper reduced by 20% cost.
    Then, cost price of mobile phone = 8, 000 – 8, 000 x 20/100
    = 8, 000 – 1, 600
    = Rs. 6, 400

    Again reduce 10% cost.
    Then, price of mobile phone = 6, 400 – 6, 400 x 10/100
    = 6, 400 – 640
    = Rs. 5, 760

    So, the final price of mobile phone is Rs. 5, 760.

    Hence, correct answer is option (1) Rs. 5, 760.
