**Hint:**Depreciation refers to when the value of something goes down over time.

Depreciation \[\% \] occurring on cost price is formulated as:

Reduced amount of after depreciation is formulated as

Initial Cost Price \[ - \] Depreciation \[ = \] Reduced Cost Price.

**Complete step by step solution:**

Given,

Initial Cost Price of T.V. \[ = \]Rs.\[21000\] ……. (i)

Depreciation \[\% \]after one year \[ = 5\% \] ……… (ii)

We know that the Depreciation occurs at Cost Price.

Hence,

Depreciation \[\% \] of Cost Price \[ = \] Depreciated amount

Put value from (i) and (ii)

We get,

Depreciated amount \[ = 5\% \,of\,2100\]

\[ = \dfrac{5}{{100}} \times \,2100\,\] \[\,[\because 5\% = \dfrac{5}{{100}}]\]

\[ = 5 \times 210\]

Depreciated amount \[ = Rs.\,1050\] ………. (iii)

Reduced Cost Price of the product must be equal to:

Reduced Cost Price \[ = \] Initial Cost Price \[ - \] Depreciated amount

Using Value from (i) and (iii)

Reduced Cost Price

\[ = Rs.\,21000 - Rs.\,1050\]

\[ = Rs.\,(21000 - \,1050)\]

\[ = Rs.\,19950\]

Hence, the value of the T.V after one year \[ = Rs.\,19950\]

**Note:**Never confuse Depreciation with Discount.

Depreciation as mentioned in the question is reduction in price of an item due to use and age of the item. Whereas, Discount is the amount offered to a customer by the seller on a new item.
