B. discount: \$14.99, sale price: \$59.96

Step-by-step explanation:

To find the discount, you have to calculate the 20% of the regular price for the designer jeans:

\$74.95*20% = \$14.99

Now, to determine the sale price, you have to subtract the discount from the regular price:

\$74.95-\$14.99 = \$59.96

According to this, the answer is B as the discount is \$14.99 and the sale price is \$59.96.
