============================================

Question: In which case 240 and 7xx for original title to be there?

Answer: (with remarks from experts from LC) What we have here is a compilation with the original language and 2 translations. The 1st question we have to ask is for the preferred title, do we go 1. with the "commonly known" title (Kathākusumadvāṣaṣṭi … ) or 2. with the conventional collective title (Short stories. Selections … ). Here, it's best practice to go with the "commonly known" title. The 3 analytical 700s that you have given are correct. The 240 should not be used here in these situations (whenever there are more than one language presented).
