Let marked price =4p, cost price=3p

Let discount percentage offered before it was sold =3q,    profit(loss) percentage=4q.

Therefore    (4p)-(4p)(3q)/100 = selling price................................................(1)

            Assume it as a profit case then    (selling price - 3p)/3p * 100 = 4q...............................................(2)

Now substitute 1 in 2 we get

         {(4p) - (4p)(3q)/100 - 3p}/3p * 100 = 4q

            {p(1- 12q/100)}/3p * 100 =4q

              q = 100/24

In solving as no negative values are obtained our assumption of profit is true.......and finally value of   4q = 4*100/24 =50/3% profit

Option C is correct.
