On June 1, 2005, Ahmad mailed a written offer to Zaid for the sale of an office building.
The offer included an express term that it would expire on July 30, 2005 if the acceptance was not
delivered into the hands of the offeror by the expiration date. On July 30, 2005 at 8:00 a.m., Zaid
sent a written acceptance to Ahmad via Zaid’s personal messenger. However, the messenger was
not able to deliver the acceptance until August 1, 2005. On August 2, 2005, Ahmad contacted Zaid,
informing him that the acceptance had been delivered one day late. As a result, Ahmad refused to
honor the acceptance. Which of the following is the most correct statement? Explain with the
of revelant section.
a. There is no contract between Ahmad and Zaid. However, if Ahmad would have mailed the
acceptance on July 30, 2005, a contract would have been created.
b. There is a contract between Ahmad and Zaid. The moment that Masse gave the acceptance to
the messenger, a contract was formed because acceptances are valid immediately upon dispatch.
c. There is a contract between Ahmadd and Zaid. The fact that the acceptance arrived only one day
late is of no significance.
d. There is no contract between Ahmad and Zaid.
