Any Clue?


This is the label from a Mountain Dew bottle that I bought recently from a small town on the way to Amritsar. Since you know that I am weak at Maths, can you please calculate the price that I was supposed to pay for this cold drink?? Please click on the picture to enlarge it to see the label clearly.

Later I would tell you what I actually paid.

And okay, this has nothing to do with THAT maths. That was only to add some color to this otherwise totally dull, drab and confused post.

Hmmmm, looks like a spurious label. You should send the manufacturer and the local newspaper a link to this picture. They will enlighten you

Well, it says Save Rs. 15 overall -that's Rs. 10 on the Dew and Rs. 5 on the Tropicana. So the package of Rs. 65 comes for Rs. 50.

Did you pay 50? Or 40? Or 65? :-)

Parul said...

I give up, tell already.

zirelda said...

Well, here it would have cost about $1.50 or so.

Thank God you were going to receive your Mom and not to catch the flight yourself which you surely would have missed while doing blah, blah at the cold drink shop, like that 'Bathinda ki sikhnee' missed her train while bargaining over the price of mineral water at Ratlam station.

PARRY said...

Well obviously one will pay 50Rs.
Infact the offer cud have said "One tropicana free with Dew" costing 50Rs.
Now going to ur latest post to know wats the suspense. :D

hitch writer said...

L. Venkata Subramaniam said...

Usha Pisharody said...

Which one did you want to buy? There seem to be two. My guess? [My maths is terrible:)] Rs 50/-!!
