भुलक्कड़ सार्थक गया चॉकलेट खरीदने... (Absent-minded Saarthak went to buy chocolates...)

कुछ साथियों और मित्रों की फरमाइश पर कुछ आसान प्रश्न भी डाल रहा हूं...
As requested by a few of my friends and colleagues, am putting a few of easy ones...

विशेष नोट : अगर आप जवाब ढूंढ लेते हैं तो ठीक, वरना कमेंट लिख दीजिएगा, मैं जवाब आपको मेल के जरिये भेज दूंगा...

अपनी पिछली बरेली यात्रा के दौरान मैंने अपने पुत्र सार्थक को कुछ चॉकलेट लाने बाज़ार भेजा, जो उसके जन्मदिन की दावत के बाद उसके दोस्तों को रिटर्न गिफ्ट के तौर पर दी जानी थीं...

दुकान पर पांच तरह की चॉकलेट उपलब्ध थीं, जिनकी कीमत क्रमशः 20 रुपये, 70 रुपये, 100 रुपये, 150 रुपये तथा 200 रुपये थी, और हम सभी प्रकार की चॉकलेट खरीदना चाहते थे...

हमने उसके दोस्तों को गिना, और फिर मैंने उसे बताया कि इनमें से कौन-से तीन प्रकारों की पांच-पांच चॉकलेट उसे खरीदनी हैं...

इसके अलावा मैंने सार्थक को शेष दो प्रकारों की छह-छह चॉकलेट खरीदने के लिए कहा...

लेकिन हमेशा की तरह, मेरा भुलक्कड़ बेटा भूल गया, कि पापा ने कौन-सी चॉकलेट पांच-पांच खरीदनी थीं, और कौन-सी चॉकलेट छह-छह...

लेकिन सौभाग्य से, मैंने उसे गिनकर उतने ही पैसे दिए थे, जितने में सभी ज़रूरी चॉकलेट खरीदी जा सकें, यानि 3000 रुपये, सो, सार्थक ने हिसाब लगाया, और सही मात्रा में चॉकलेट खरीद लाया...

अब क्या आप लोग मुझे बता सकते हैं, प्रत्येक प्रकार की कितनी-कितनी चॉकलेट सार्थक ने खरीदीं...?

Now, the same riddle in English...

Special Note: If you succeed in solving this one, well and good; but in case, you don't, just leave a comment, and I will mail the answer to you...

During my last visit to Bareilly, I sent my son Saarthak to market to buy some chocolates, to be given to his friends as return gifts, after his birthday party will be over...

There were five types of chocolates available at the shop, which were priced at Rs 20, Rs 70, Rs 100, Rs 150 and Rs 200, respectively, and we wanted to buy all types for his friends...

We counted his friends, and then I asked him to buy five pieces each of three of them, and told him which three...

For the other two, I asked him to buy six of each...

But, like always, Saarthak forgot, which he was supposed to buy five of, and which to buy six of...

Luckily, I gave him the exact amount required to buy the chocolates, Rs 3000, and he was able to calculate, so he could buy the required chocolates...

Now, can you guys tell me, how many chocolates of each type did he buy...?

    1. Jawaab galat hai, Anand ji... Paanchon tarah ke chocolates khareedne hain... Aur haan, 150x5=350 nahin hota...
