Solution

1250
Explanation : 
Let's consider the cost price for Gita be 'x',
as given in the question,
(80* x) /100 = 800
x =1000

The cost price for Gita would be the selling price for shakti
Let's consider the actual price of the watch be 'w'
(80*w) / 100 = 1000
w = 1250

Thus the actual cost of the watch is ₹1250.
