Contract Act_Practical Problems_45

A offers to B his scooter for Rs. 6,000. B writes back agreeing to buy it for Rs. 5,500. Is there a concluded contract between A and B for sale of the scooter for Rs. 5,500?

No; For conclusion of a contract it is necessary that the offer of the party be accepted in absolute and without any qualifications or conditions. In the present case. B's agreeing to buy the scooter for Rs. 5,500 instead of the proposed amount of Rs. 6,000, only amounts to a fresh proposal or counter-proposal and doesn't constitute acceptance of the proposal or offer of A.
