    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 1000rs note saying "duplicate" and
    takes his money back.

    How much LOSS did the shopkeeper face ?

    Total loss = Amount for purchased items + The change

    = 200 + 800

    Ans: 1000

    Rs. 2000

    The lady gave Rs. 1000 to the shopkeeper which was taken by the other shopkeeper, so he lost Rs. 1000. Plus he lost the money for the item worth Rs. 200 as well. Plus he gave the women Rs. 800 back, so 1000+200+800 = 2000.
