How to speak English in more generic or abstract way. A Chocolate is worth of 2 and a person, ex: XYZ, buy it by paying 2 dollars. If I say 1) XYZ buys a 2 dollars worth chocolate by paying 2 dollars. 2) XYZ buys a chocolate for the money he paid. Sentence-1 gives exact information about price of Chocolate and how much XYZ paid to get it. However the sentence-2, does not give exact information about price of Chocolate and how much XYZ paid to get it. SO my question is, what is the type of sentence-2?. How to speak in this way in spoken English?. Is there any rules/guidelines to make this type of sentence?.

You wrote: ¨XYZ buys a 2 dollars worth chocolate by paying 2 dollars. The correct form of this sentence is: XYZ bought 2 dollars worth chocolate by paying 2 dollars. You wrote: XYZ buys a chocolate for the money he paid.¨ This is not a form of proper English. The sentence should read: XYZ bought a chocolate and paid for it.
