Thread: rupees

  1. rupees


    A : Have you change for 100 rupees?

    B: I have 5,000 rupees but all 1,000 rupees notes. So I can't give you change.

    Is there any word to replace `change'?

    Re: rupees

    'Change' is the obvious choice of words in that context - sometimes as a noun (as in your example) and sometimes as a verb: 'Can you change 100 rupees'.

    Sometimes a shopkeeper will say 'Do you have the right change?' (say, early in the morning, when changing a large note is impossible), or 'Do you have anything smaller?'

    B, returning to your example, might say 'Sorry - the smallest I've got is a thousand.' In that case he probably wouldn't bother with the second sentence - which is obviously the case.
