A (1): that has a reasonable price (Respondent 1) A (2): there are a lot of people who cannot go abroad for shopping.

A: We browse both areas of the market Q: What items do you purchase from this market?

A lot! (Respondent 1) A (2): Yes Of course! That’s where the fun is.. (Respondent 2) Q: and why is it so much fun? A: Because they (retailers) quote the price so high on purpose Q: Let’s say, that I quote an item’s price as Rs. 1000. What price will you quote for it to the retailer? A: The main price that you have… let’s say is Rs. 700 so you’ll quote 400 and that way he will agree upon Rs. 700… Q: How do you begin negotiating with the retailer? A: Direct Hit! I’ll quote the price Rs. X and if he disagrees then we’ll walk away from the shop… we know they will call us back 102

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
