    Answer …(2) Rs.600

    let original price is X,
    Discount = 25% of x=25x/100 ,

    Cost Price =x-25x/100 =75x/100

    Selling price =140% of C.P. =(75x/100) X 140/100 = 1.05x

    Since selling price is Rs. 40 more than Original Price

    Therefore ..               1.05x-x=40
    x= 800

    Hence  Cost Price is         (75X800)/100=600Rs.
