Question

PRINCIPLE: Acceptance should be made while the offer is still subsisting. The offeror is free to retract his offer at any time before his offer gets accepted by the offeree. Once the offer is withdrawn or is lapsed, it is not open to be accepted so as to give rise to a contract. Similarly, if a time is prescribed within which the offer is to be accepted, then, the offer must be accepted within the prescribed time.

And, if no time is prescribed, then, the acceptance must be made within a reasonable time. ‘What is a reasonable time’, is a question of fact which is to be determined by taking into account all the relevant facts and surrounding circumstances.

FACTS: `X’ makes an offer to `Y’ to sell his equipment for Rs. 1, 000.00. No time is specified for the acceptance. `Y’ sends his reply two years after receiving the offer.
