1. ## Gopal's dilemma

sent by
Mamoon Rashid

Gopal gave his servant Rs.50/- to buy a kilogram of Desi Ghee. The servant went to the grocery shop and asked for a packet of Desi Ghee of 1 kilogram. The cost of the same was Rs.45/- and so the servant got Rs.5/- in return. Now what the servant did is, he kept Rs.2/- with himself and returned back Rs.3/- to his owner with the Ghee packet.

The owner acknowledges that the Ghee's cost was Rs.47/-. So this is Rs.47/- and Gopal's servant has Rs.2/- with him which both adds up to Rs.49/-.

So, where is one ruppee gone?????

2. The calculation made in the last was based on the wrong assumption by the owner , that the Desi Ghee was 47 rupees / Kg ,
so we will not get the correct answer by adding up the wrong assumption of the owner and the remaining rupees of the worker Gopal.

but if we suppose that the owner is right and desi ghee is 47 rupees per KG then we have to add up the returning 3 rupees in it to make it 50 , the remaining rupees of gopal cant get the right answer because there he is making a false statement to the owner.

3. what was that 45 plus 3 is not 47 ?????????????/
