    Answer: (3) Rs.1000

    Explanation:
    Let the cost price of a table be Rs. X
    Loss = 10 %.
    And difference of selling price = 500 – 400
    = Rs.100

    Then. X x 10/100 = 100
    10 X = 100 x 100
    X = 10000/10
    X = Rs.1000

    Then, the cost price of a table is Rs.1000.
    Hence, the answer is (3) Rs.1000.
