### Solution:

Given, the ratio of cost price and marked price is 2:3
Let
profit = marked price – cost price
= 3a – 2a
= a
profit percentage =
discount percentage
Let cost price = 200 and SP = 300
6a + 6a
12a = 100

a = 8.33%
Discount = 2a
= 2 × 8.33
= 16.66%
Therefore, option 2 is the correct answer.
