Study Guide Bava Batra 95

More attempts are brought from tannaitic sources similar to our case to prove Rav Huna’s opinion that if the bad parts mixed in with the produce add up to more than the permitted percentage, one can demand compensation for all of them. However, each comparison as rejected and the gemara explains why each case if different.  The gemara tries to analyze what the seller stipulated in the case in the mishna regarding a sale of wine cellar – was it “wine in a cellar,” “wine in this cellar” or “this cellar?”  A braita stipulating the halacha in these 3 cases are brought as well as a different version brought by Rav Zevid.  These are discussed and reinterpreted in order to fit with the mishna and with each other.
