Option 3 : Rs. 125

**Given:**

Discount = Rs. 100

Shopkeeper earns profit = 140%

Profit% if sold at no discount = 220%

**Calculation:**

Let the CP be 100%

SP if profit is 140% = 240%

SP if profit is 220% = 320%

Difference in SP = Discount of Rs. 100

So, 220% – 140% = Rs. 100

⇒ 80% = Rs. 100

Then 100% = Rs. (100/80) × 100

⇒ Rs. 125

**∴ CP of the article is Rs. 125**
