let mark price is 100 Rs.

after giving 25% discount the selling price=75Rs.

if the profit is 25% then the cost price=(100/100+25)*75=60Rs

if now they give 10%discount the selling price=90Rs

so gain=90-60=30Rs

gain%=(30/60)*100=50%

If a shop gives a 10 percent discount, the profit percentage will be less than 25 percent, as the discount reduces the overall selling price of the item. The actual profit percentage would depend on the cost price and the new selling price after the discount is applied.
