I know there is a related question asked here. But its slightly different than it and seeking more information.
I live in India, I have been to America couple of times. In my first trip it was surprising to see people asking for "check" instead of "bill". I have been told by my friend that here (in America) they call it "check". I assumed may be it arosed from "check-out".
After some days another friend told me that it's "cheque", not "check" and he elaborated that just like how a banker pays money in return of cheque.
After reading few answers/question and links given in the relative question, I really made a conclusion that which one is correct to use because I doubt only one has to be correct and remaining evolved by misinterpretation because "check" and "cheque" sound the same?
