The answer is c..Decreases net income.

Purchase discount  affects the selling price of an item thus reducing sales in relations to the discount rate offered.

Example  if a selling price of an item was marked at $10, then due to competition  a discount of 10% is offered, the item will be sold at $9 hence $1 discount.The seller will get $9 instead of $10 hence reductions of sales income thus decreasing net income.
