Correct answer to #1: (b) Even if the patent is valid, D would have a free, nonexclusive right to use the device because P was not hired to invent. Correct answer to #2: (b) Perks has made an offer for a unilateral contract because a contract will be created only if and when the customer buys 10 cups of coffee and has his/her card stamped 10 times. Correct answer to #3: (a)No words are exchanged between P and D that give rise to an express contract. Nor has D engaged in any conduct that reflects an intention to pay for the wells (no implied contract). And the doctrine of quasi-contract does not apply here because there is an express contract between P and Blake that covers the situation (P is entitled to recover from Blake under the terms of their contract, and Blake clearly has the financial ability to pay P). Correct answer to #4: (b) There is no contract here. A price quotation is like an advertisement; it is an invitation to make an offer. P faxed an offer to D, but D rejected it. Correct answer to #5: (b) A contract was formed based on the application process. D published eligibility criteria for the scholarship. P met those criteria and applied. D accepted P and her check.Correct answer to #6: (b) D did not provide anything of value to support P’s promise to pay an extra $75,000. D had a pre-existing duty to complete the house for $300,000. Promising to do something that you already have a legal obligation to do does not qualify as consideration. Correct answer to #7: (a)An acceptance by e-mail takes effect when it hits the recipient’s server. Because the terms of Charlie’s offer require an acceptance before 2:00 p.m. and Trista’s e-mail does not take effect until 2:00 p.m., Trista was too late to accept the offer.
