The Loss is Rs.1000 Only.

 

Rs.1000 taken from Other Shop is returned to that Shop as it is. So No Profit No Loss here.

Rs.800 + Goods of Rs.200 paid to Lady in Exchange of Duplicate Note of Rs.1000 is the Actual Loss.

 

Therefore Total Loss is Rs. 1000/- Only.

The correct answer is Rs.1000.

As the shopkeeper has paid to the next shopkeeper his own money which he has given at the time of change and taken the money given by the lady which was "Duplicate". Hence, here he is left with the duplicate note of lady which has no value. And shopkeeper has also given Rs.800 in exchange to the lady with the goods of Rs. 200.

So, the loss of goods Rs. 200 and loss of money Rs. 800 which is totalled to Rs.1000.

Loss of Rs 2000.

first he has to give Rs 1000 to shopkepper + .Rs 200 for goods + Rs 800 which he gave to lady

Rs1000 note is duplicate so of no use
