SHOPKEEPER GIVES 800 TO WOMAN,

HE SOLD GOODS OF RS 200 TO WOMAN

AND ALSO RETURN RS 1000 TO NEXT SHOP DUE TO DUPLICATE NOTE.

SO HE FACED LOSS OF RS 2000.00

1000 rs loss let's take example a shop keeper is having 0 rs and a single energy drink bottle he got 200 bucks for that energy drink. now just think that he is not having 200 rs insted of that he's having that energy drink it self. so till now he's not in loss. and after that he return 1000 rs to another shop keeper so the loss is only monetary loss of rs 1000

It is 1800,

 

As he gave only 800 to lady so his 200 for goods recovered,

when the other shop keeper returened his 1000 Rs, he had to give him back 1000Rs,

So, He gave 800 to lady and 1000 Rs to Shop Keeper so it is 1800 INR.

Any one with different answer ???
