Yah Adeyemi Blessing, i am aware, was expecting contributions from your co jambites. Nevertheless here is my solution.
Cost price % = 100
Selling price % = 100 + 14.28 = 114.28
If we designate the mark price % = y
so for a discount of 11.11% below the mark price, the selling price = (100 - 11.11)of y%
so that (100 - 11.11)y/100 = 114.28
by subject formular y = 114.28/88.89 * 100 = 128.5633%
recall that cost price = 100%
so mark price % = 128.5633 - 100 = 28.5633%
from the options given the option closest to this value is Option A, hence the answer.
You can ask questions if you have.
