Price level in foreign country: (Japan) Pf = 3

Price level in home country: (India) P = 1.2

Now, real exchange rate `= e(P_f)/P`

Price of 1.25 yen = 1 rupee

Price of 1 yen` =1/25=100/125 = 4/5`    

Therefore, `e = 4/5`

So, real exchange rate `=e(P_f)/P`


= 2

Therefore, the real exchange rate is 2.


First find out the nominal exchange rate as a price of yen in rupees.
