3 for a rupee means that he could buy 3(50)= 150 lemons. That is 150/5= 30 sets of 5 lemons so he sold them for 2(30)= 60 rupees. He gained 60- 50= 10 rupees.

So same as using a rupee = a dollar Abdul purchases lemons for 50 dollars, at the rate of 3 lemons per dollar, and sells them at 5 lemons for 2 dollars. What is his total gain or loss. Gain of 10 dollars is obvious, of course. Thanks from Hammad
