Later on, lots of improvements have been made and different versions have been released. Attached with this assignment is an enhanced ELIZA program.

In this part, you need to solve an interesting mathematical and logical problem. The story is given below, please read carefully and answer the question given at the end.


There were two friends Ali and Owais living in a town and used to sell fruits in a market. One day, both of them were having 30 oranges (each) in their baskets and there was slight difference in selling rate as below.

CS607 Assignment solution spring 2013

Figure 1: Ali’s Basket…Total 30 oranges…Rate is 2 oranges per Rs.1

 CS607 Assignment solution spring 2013_1

Figure 2: Owais’s Basket…Total 30 oranges…Rate is 3 oranges per Rs.1


You can easily calculate that as per above rates…Ali will earn Rs.15 and Owais will earn Rs.10. (Total Rs.25)


Suddenly, Ali has to go for some important task and asked his friend Owais to sell his oranges together by putting all the oranges in one basket. They decided the rate as below.

Ali’s Rate is……………… 2 oranges per Rs.1

Owais’s Rate is…………… 3 oranges per Rs.1

By adding the two rates…. 5 oranges per Rs.2


Thus Owais has 60 oranges in the basket and selling rate was 5 oranges per Rs.2.


At the end of the day, Owais get Rs. 24 by selling all 60 oranges @ 5 oranges per Rs.2. Now, they don’t know how to share the amount as they were expecting Rs.25. They start looking for some Wiseman who can tell them the reason of the difference. You can be the Wiseman if you know the reason.


Your task is to resolve this issue by finding the reasons of difference… they were getting Rs.25 (in total) when they were selling separately and now they got Rs.24 by selling it together (though the rate appears to be the same).





You are required to submit your solution in MS Word format through LMS.

  • For Part-1, two screen shots of your discussion with Eliza program as desired.
  • For Part-2, you need to give the exact reasons of the difference of Rs.1.
