Question:

The following are some of the catchy advertisements of products that we purchase from the market. Which of the following offers would really benefit consumers? Discuss.

  • 5 gm more in every 500 gm pack.
  • Subscribe for a newspaper with a gift at the end of a year.
  • Scratch and win gifts worth ₹ 10 lakhs.
  • A milk chocolate inside a 500 gram glucose box.
  • Win a gold coin inside a pack.
  • Buy shoes worth ₹ 2000 and get one pair of shoes worth ₹ 500 free.

Answer:

The above advertisements are very attractive, but in reality, there is an advertisement that benefits the consumers - 'a gold coin inside the packet'. After purchasing the packet, the consumer can take the receipt of the cash payment from him, open the packet in front of the shopkeeper and take out the gold coin from it. If there is no gold coin or fake coin in the packet, he can accuse the seller of cheating and can also go to the consumer court against him. If the gold coin is pure, then it is an added benefit to the consumer.
