  1. akshita

    In q6..in statement d..potato price ni hoga??

    1. Srishti

      The price of “something” means the std price.
      “Something” prices means “price set by local community”

      Local market mei toh aalu pe gst lga ke bill nhi Denge na.

  2. saikatdatta

    In question 2 “poor communities” nehi hoga??

    1. Srishti

      More poor is not standard version. So we make use of “poorer” as a comparative degree.

      Hope it helps.
