The expression of willingness/desire results in a valid proposal only when it is made/addressed to some person (s).   

Facts: ‘X’ makes the following statement in an uninhabited hall. ‘I wish to sell my mobile phone for Rs. 1000.

Test: Contract Of Law - 5 - Question 42

Principle: A proposal (offer) should be made with an intention that after its valid acceptance, a legally binding promise or agreement will be created. The test for the determination of such intention is not subjective, rather it is objective. The intension of the parties is to be ascertained from the terms of the agreement and the surrounding circumstance under which such   an agreement is entered into.     
As a general rule, in the case of arrangements regulating social relations, it follows as a matter of course that the parties do not intend legal consequences to follow. On the contrary, as a general rule, in the case of arrangements regulating business affairs, it follows as a matter of course that the parties intend legal consequences to follow. However, the above rules are just presumptive in nature and hence can be rebutted.

Facts: ‘X’ made an offer to buy Y’s property for a stipulated price. ‘Y’ accepted it and communicated his acceptance to ‘Z’, a stranger.

Test: Contract Of Law - 5 - Question 44

Principle: Acceptance should be made while the offer is still subsisting. The offeror is free to retract his offer at any time before his offer gets accepted by offeree. Once the offer is withdrawn or is lapsed, it is not open to be accepted so as to give rise to a contract. Similarly, if a time is prescribed within which the offer is to be accepted, then the offer must be accepted within the prescribed time. And if no time is prescribed, then the acceptance must be made within a reasonable time. ‘What is a reasonable time’, is a question of fact which is to be determined by taking into account all the relevant facts and surrounding circumstances. 

Facts: ‘X’ makes an offer to ‘Y’ to sell his equipment for Rs.1000.00. No time is specified for the acceptance. ‘Y’ sends his reply two years after receiving the offer.

Test: Contract Of Law - 5 - Question 46

Principle: A contract which is duly supported by real and lawful consideration is valid notwithstanding the fact that the consideration is inadequate. The quantum of consideration is for the parties to decide at the time of making a contract and not for the courts (to decide) when the contract is sought to be enforced. An agreement to which the consent merely because the consent of the promisor is freely given is not void inadequate. But the inadequacy of the consideration may be taken into account by the court in determining the    question whether the consent of the promisor was freely given.

Facts: ‘A’ agrees to sell his mobile phone worth Rs. 20000 for Rs. 100 only to ‘B’ A’s consent is freely given.

Test: Contract Of Law - 5 - Question 48

Principle: The consideration of object of an agreement is unlawful if the court regards it as opposed to public policy. Every agreement of which the object or consideration is unlawful is void.
Facts: ‘X’ promises to obtain for ‘Y’ an employment in the public service and ‘Y’ promises to pay Rs. 500000 to ‘X’

Test: Contract Of Law - 5 - Question 49

Principle: Two or more person are said to consent if they agree upon the same thing in the same sense. Consent is said to be free when it is not caused by coercion, or undue influence, or fraud, or misrepresentation, or mistake.  
When consent to an agreement is caused by coercion, undue influence, fraud or misrepresentation, the agreement is a contract voidable (rescindable or terminable) at the option of the party whose consent was so caused, However, when consent to an agreement is caused by mistake as to a matter of fact essential to the agreement, the agreement is void.

Detailed Solution for Test: Contract Of Law - 5 - Question 50

In the given situation, X enters into an agreement with Y, where he agrees not to marry anybody else other than  a person whose name starts with the letter A. So, this agreement is against the principle given here, consequently the agreement between X and Y is void and cannot be enforced by the court of Law.
