**Option D. 4.5% profit**

Let the marked price of Computer be M and the cost price of the Computer be 100.

therefore, the loss incurred when selling at 0.8M = 12% of 100 = 12.

Hence, when selling at 80% of the marked price, the article is sold at 100 - 12 = 88.

i.e., 0.8M = 88. or *M = 110 *[ Market Price = 110 ]

If the computer is sold at 95% of the marked price, I will sell the computer at 95% of 110 = 104.5

i.e. profit of 4.5%
