The productivity of France is higher in cheese.

The productivity of Germany is higher in car

The France productivity = 0.25 car/2 kilo =(1/4)/2 =1/8 car per kilo

The German productivity = 0.5 car/1 kilo = 1/2 car per kilo

Hence price will be somewhere between 1/8 car per kilo to 1/2 car per kilo

Hence price will be somewhere between  0.125 car per kilo to 0.5  car per kilo
