    sent ouf of

    Any two items sent out of Mumbai.

    I understood this sentence as:

    Any two items that has been bought from Mumbai.

    Am I right?

    If wrong, please explain the correct one.

    The use of the phrase "out of" indicates a movement from within something to outside it. "Any two items have been sent out of Mumbai" - they may well have been bought from Mumbai, and when bought they were sent out of the city.
