Contract Act_Practical Problems_53

A enters into a contract with B for the sale of goods to be delivered at a future date. Is it a wagering agreement? Give reasons.

The contract in question is not a wagering agreement. It only involves future consideration and is a valid, enforceable, common business transaction. A transaction, to be wagering, must make the performance of the transaction dependent upon the happening or non-happening of an uncertain future event. The performance in the given case being not so dependent, transaction is not wagering.
