Recommender systems are built with the aim to reduce the cognitive load on the user. An efficient recommender system should ensure that a user spends minimal time in the process. Conversational Case-Based Recommender Systems (CCBR-RSs) depend on the feedback provided by the user to learn about the preferences of the user. Our goal is to use the feedback provided by the user effectively by exploiting the interplay among the products to build an efficient CCBR-RS. In this work, we propose two ways towards achieving that goal. In the first method, we utilize the higher order similarity and trade-off relationship among the products to propagate the evidence obtained through user feedback. In our second method, we utilize the diversity among cases/products along with the similarity and trade-off relationship to make the best use of the feedback provided by the user.
