How is money used in everyday life? Explain with examples.


In modern times, money is used as a medium of exchange because it has been authorized by the government as a currency. In everyday lives we use money :

to buy goods and services like in a market money can be used to buy clothes, vegetables etc.

to deposit in banks so that money can be saved and used for future use. For example- if a labourer deposits his monthly salary in his bank account, then, he can use it in installments in the whole month.

as a store value. For instance- we cannot store perishable goods like milk, grain etc to exchange goods in future. However, we can buy precious metals like gold and save it for future use.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
