1. 1000
2. 2000
3. 1200
4. 920

Explanation :-

First Discount= 20% of labeled price i.e. SP = 80% of Labeled Price
Second Discount= 12%  of (80% of labeled price)  i.e. Second SP = 88% of 80% of Labeled Price
Therefore
88% of 80% of labeled Price =704
Labeled Price = (704*100*100)/(88*80)
Labeled Price = Rs 1000

Discount =135-108=27
Discount %age=(100/135)*27=20%
