1.The market basket may not be representative, it can overstate or understate inflation for certain groups.
2.CPI does measure the variation in price for retail goods and other items paid by consumers, it does not include things like savings and investments.
I find it hard to understand the meaning of the preposition for,
when it acts as an adverb, it isn't that difficult,
but when it acts as an adjective , it completely baffles me, like the examples above.
I guess the fors above are adjectival and modifies the preceding noun ,
but how do I understand or interpret the meaning of these fors?

If it's an adverb:
"I bought this for you"
"for" here tells the purpose or introduce the people receiving the thing.
That's the meaning I know.
