For comparing two quantities, we should make their unit the same first. So,

Fruits bought by Shyama in kg =  5 kg + 300 g + 3 kg + 250 g 

                                                  =  8 kg + 550 g 

                                                  =  8 kg + 0.55 kg

                                                  = 8.55 kg.

Fruits bought by Sarala in kg  = 4 kg + 800 g + 4 kg + 150 g

                                                = 8 kg + 950 kg 

                                                = 8 kg + 0.95 kg

                                                = 8.95 kg.

Hence Sarala bought more fruits as 8.95 > 8.55

  The difference between the amount of Fruits they bought =  8.95 kg - 8.55 kg

                                                                                              = 0.4 kg
