**Q4.** **Given below is a question followed by three statements. Study the statements and decide which of the statement(s) is/are necessary to answer the question. What was the discount percentage given?**

** I) On selling the table, for Rs 12650, 26.5 %, Profit was earned. **

**II) If there had been no discount, 30% would have been earned as profit. **

**III) The Cost price of the table was Rs 10000 **

Solution:

From statement – I

S.P. = Rs 12650, Profit = 26.5%

∴ C.P = 100/126.5 * 12650 = 10000

From statement II

Mark Price = 130% of C.P. = Rs 13000

∴ From statement I and II

Discount = Rs (13000 - 12650) = Rs 350

Discount % = 350/13000

* 100 and Therefore, can be calculated

∴ Statement I and II can give the answer. However, statement II and III together cannot.

The question is " Study the statements and decide which of the statement(s) is/are necessary to answer the question. What was the discount percentage given? "

Statement I and II can give the answer.

Hence, the answer is Only I and II.
