LAW6501, SEMESTER 1, 2023
ONLINE ASSIGNMENT QUESTION
Sanika Electronics Pty Ltd, a vendor of electronic equipment, advertised, “Never to be
repeated offer. 75 inch Elegant 4K ultra HD Teletisions @ $3500.” Bony saw the
advertisement on TV and went to the nearest Sanika store the very next day
(Thursday). He got Mollie, the sales manager, there and said, “I accept the offer on the
Elegant 4K ultra HD Teletisions, here is my card, please deliver it as soon as possible.”
Mollie told him to slow down. “Unfortunately, there has been a rush and we have sold
out”, she said. “Look” said Bob, “I know my contract law- we have got a contract”.
Mollie went on saying, “No, we haven’t. The only Elegant from the same series left is
the demonstration model, and you can have that for $2000. Not a bad price as they
usually sell for around $3500. That should make you happy.”

Bony was not sure and said that he would think about it. Then the sales manager said
she would definitely keep the product for him until Friday only if Bony provides a
$10 booking money. She also assured that this small amount will be adjusted during
the main transaction. However, Bony was unsure and refused the arrangement. He
just said he would let her know by noon the next day (Friday).
The next day at 9:00 am Mark walked into the store, saw the demonstration model,
and offered Mollie $2,500 for it. Mollie sold it to Mark. At 10:30 am Friday Bony rang
Mollie and told her that he would buy the demonstration set at the price she offered.
Mollie then told him the bad news – the set had been sold.
Bony seeks your advice as to whether he and Sanika Electronics Pty Ltd made a
contract on either Thursday or Friday.
