This section consists of fifty $$(50)$$ questions. Each question consists of legal propositions/ principles (hereinafter referred to as 'principles') and facts. These principles have to be applied to the given facts to arrive at the most reasonable conclusion. Such principles may or may not be true in the real sense, yet you have to conclusively assume them to be true for the purposes of this section.

Principle: If a contract is made by post between two persons living in two different cities, then the contract is said to be completed as soon as the letter of acceptance is properly posted and the place of completion of the contract is that city where acceptance is posted. It is worth mentioning here that in every contract there is always an offer from one party and the acceptance of the offer from the other party.
Facts: Sani, a resident of Patna, gives an offer by post to sell his house for $$Rs. 25$$ lach to Hani, a resident of Allahabad. This offer letter is posted on $$1st\ January, 2013$$ from Patna and reaches Allahabad on $$7th\ January, 2013$$. Hani accepts this offer and posts the letter of acceptance on $$8th\ January, 2013$$ from Allahabad which reaches Patna on $$16th\ January, 2013$$. But Sani presuming that Hani is not interested in accepting his offer, sells his house to Gani at same price on $$15th$$ of January, $$2013$$. Hani files a suit gainst Sani for the breach of contract in the competent court of Allahabad. Whether Hani will succeed?


A

loader
B
Hani cannot succeed as he could use some other effective and speedy mode for communicating his acceptance in minimum possible time
loader
C
Hani can succeed as he properly posted the letter of acceptance and the delay was beyond his control
loader

Solution

The correct option is D Hani can succeed as contract became complete in the eyes of law on the date of posting the letter of acceptance
According to the legal principal given the contract is said to be complete as soon as the letter of acceptance is property posted and the place of completion of the contract is that city where acceptance is posted, In this case, Hani can succeed, because he posted his acceptance the very next day without wasting any time, so the contract complete in the eyes of law on the date of posting the letter of acceptance.
