A very simple but cnfusing puzzle.


A lady buys goods worth rs.200 from a shop. (shopkeeper selling the goods with zero profit).
The lady givs him 1000 rs note. The shopkeepr gets the change from the next shop and keeps 200 for himself and returns rs.800 to d lady. 
Later the shopkeepr of the next shop comes with the 1000rs note saying "duplicate" and takes his money back. 


How much LOSS did the shopkeepr face?

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 ???
