    I assume you're saying that potatoes cost $1 per kg, onions cost $0.25 per kg, and mutton $20 per kg? Is that right?

    Whats the condition ?
    as in do you have to buy in integral multiples of kilo ?
    or as richard here pointed out, can you fill the quota with one item?
    Guddu, your question is very vague. Kindly clarify
