B: See bhai it is torn S: Baji I will get it stitched for you B: How much are you going to give me this for? S: Rs 2500 B: Rs 2500 for a used and torn bag? She starts walking out and the seller keeps reducing the price and finally quoted 1500 but she refused to buy it. Observation: Profit and bargaining margin on used items is huge. Sellers even come down to 50% of the quoted price to sell their products. Buyers are also aware of this fact that seller always quotes high prices and they will have to reduce it to at least half of the quoted price. OBSERVATION 6 Shop: Ladies garments (Shirts, pants etc) 158

She gave Rs 350 to the seller. Seller apologized to B2 Observation: Sometimes 2 buyers want the same thing and this is the time when the buyer takes advantage of the situation.

    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.
