S is supplier and P is the purchaser. Agreement provides that Supplier should supply minimum 500 tonnes of material every month to Purchaser and if Supplier fails to supply minimum quantity to Purchaser in any month, Supplier will have to pay Purchaser the amount which is the actual price for short supplied material.
