Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

nominal GDP = private consumption + gross investment + government investment + government spending + (exports -   imports).

=200+150+ 100-50 = 400

Real GDP=GDP*inflation


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

REAL GDP =NOMINAL GDP /DEFLATOR

DEFLATOR = 1+INFLATION RATE =(35-20)/20 =15/20 =75%IN 2 YEARS.

INFLATION = 37.5%

DEFLATOR=1+37.5% =1.375

REAL GDP=400/1.375= 290.9
