Answer 1: In the case, though Ram was personally communicated by one of the board members that he had been accepted as a school teacher, there had been no mutual written valid contract between Ram and the school. School officials had made a general offer to all applicants for application for the school teacher . However they hadnt given any acceptance letter for the post to anyone. Hence, Ram cannot claim the damage in loss of salary as he has not signed any contract nor offered the appointment letter by the school.
Comment [u1]: The offer is not the 'offer' according to contractual terms. Actually, here school has to make an offer and Ram is supposed to accept the offer for teacher position.

Answer 2: In this case, mere display of goods for sale doesnt fall in the act of selling t hose goods and nor illegal. Display of goods is merely an invitation for the offer and not the offer itself. Theres no whatsoever law that shopkeeper has to sel l to whosoever has made an offer to purchase along with money. Acceptance of the offer will be done when the shopkeeper accepts the money. Hence, in this case the seller has a better position to defend himself as per the legal rule and definition of invitation of an offer.
Comment [u2]: Correct

Answer 3: In this case, Jack and the publisher both had entered in the contract with certain clauses as mentioned in the case. The clause in the contract is to print at least 5000 copies of books or greater or lesser than that. Jack had written a formal letter to ABC publisher to stop printing his book and take the letter as termination of the contract. However, publisher did not consider the letter and continued printing copies of it until it reached 5,000 copies for payment. Hence, Jack is partially correct in this case and should not be liable to be paying for the entire 5,000 copies. However, it is also true that he is liable to make payment to the publisher for the ones that had been already printed before the termination letter had been sent to the publisher.
Comment [u4]: And what will be the scenario when publisher complies with contractual obligations and not been able to claim for compensation? Can one party with any invalid reason terminate the contract? And held liable to the person who has performed? Comment [u3]: What and how much is partially correct?

Answer 4: In this case, emergency services like fire brigade needs to be given instantly and cannot be waited long for the contract to be done and payment to be received. However, on the other side from a legal point of view no contract has been done and hence john might not be liable to make payment. However, since this an issue for emergency service in my view, John is liable to make payment for what the Fire brigade teamhave done to save his ranch.

Comment [u5]: There was contract formed between John and fire brigade. If there was no contractual obligation, John would be liable for payment. Comment [u6]: Yes, John is liable because of contract formed. But which and what kind of contract?
