Answer is Rs.229.50

Explanation:-
The list price of an electric fan = Rs. 300

The single discount of two successive discounts 15% and 10% = 15 + 10 – 15 x 10/100
  = 25 – 1.5
 = 23.5 %

Then, selling price of an electric fan = 300 – 300 x 23.5/100
 = 300 – 70.5
 = Rs.229.5

Then, the selling price would be Rs. 229.5.

Hence, the correct answer is option (3) Rs. 229.5

15% means   (15/100)*300=45
300-45=255
next 10% means   (10/100)*255=25.5
255-25.5=229.50
