Rate of Exchange
 The rate at which one unit of a country’scurrency is exchanged for a number of units of the currency of another is the "exchange rate"between them. Presently one pound sterlingexchanges for Rs. 78 and U.S. dollar for Rs.48.50 This is our rate of exchange with theU.K. and the U.S.A respectively.
Every country has a currency different fromothers. There is no common medium of exchange. It is this feature that, among others,distinguishes international from domestictrade.
