**Answer: (2) 43%**

**Explanation:-
**Let the price of a car be Rs. 100.

The price of a car is increased by 30%

Then, the price of the car = 100 + 100 x 30/100

= 100 + 30

= Rs. 130

it is increased again by 10%.

Then, the price of car = 130 + 130 x 10/100

= 130 + 13 = 43%

Total percentage increase in the price of car = 143 – 100

= Rs. 43

Hence, the answer is (2) 43%.
