#### Solution

Let the original price of the object be x.
According to the question, we have:
20 % of x + x = 2000
$\Rightarrow \frac{20x}{100} + x = 2000$
$\Rightarrow \frac{120}{100}x = 2000$
$\Rightarrow x = \frac{200000}{120}$
$\Rightarrow x = 1666 . 67$
Thus, the original price of the object was Rs 1, 666 . 67 .
