    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
