A very simple but confusing puzzle.
A lady buys goods worth rs.200 from a shop.(shopkeeper selling the goods with zero profit). The lady gives him 1000 rs note. The shopkeeper gets the change from the next shop and keeps 200 for himself and returns rs.800 to d lady. Later the shopkeeper of the next shop comes with the 1000 Rs note saying "duplicate" and takes his money back. How much LOSS did the shopkeeper face??


Loss is just 1000 Rs that was shopkeeper's cost price.

no he also had to pay 800 to the next shopkeeper for the lady's false note
thx for the edit
haha welcome
CP=₹200    SP=₹200
Therefore, no loss in the transaction.
However, he had to pay the next shopkeeper ₹1000 for the lady's duplicate note.
Therefore, he incurred a loss of ₹1000
