Given:

Sonam purchases a geyser for rupees 4704 including GST. 

The original price of the geyser is rupees 4200.
To do:

 We have to find the rate of GST.

Solution:

Let the rate of GST be $x$.

This implies,

$4704=4200+\frac{x}{100}\times 4200$

$4704-4200=42x$

$504=42x$

$x=\frac{504}{42}$

$x=12 \%$

The rate of GST is $12 \%$.
