Reasoning the Reason


Principle: Once the acceptance is made a contract becomes enforceable.

Factual Situation: X goes to a site of apurva.com which is engaged in selling of furniture. He browsed through the catalogue of furniture and clicked on a bookshelf priced at ` 1,000. But at that time the server was down and the message could not pass, it bounced back. X did not notice this and now insists on getting the furniture from apurva.com but the shop has already sold it to Y . Is there any enforceable acceptance?


(a) No, because in normal case of contract the acceptance must be communicated
(b) No, because the shopkeeper has not talked face to face
(c) Yes, because X has sent his acceptance
