Question

MCQ

Principle: A condition must have complied in order to claim the benefit of an agreement.

Facts:  A agrees to transfer a farm to B, if B shall not go to England within three years after the date of the agreement, his interest in the farm shall cease. B does not go to England within the term prescribed.

Options

  • B‘s interest in the farm continues

  • B‘s interest in the farm does not continue 

  • B has a fundamental right to go to England or not to go to England and hence the condition is illegal 

  • The agreement between A and B is void 

Solution

B‘s interest in the farm does not continue 

Explanation:

B’s interest in the farm does not continue because his interest shall cease is itself the part of the condition. Read the facts. Here you will find that “his interest in the farm shall cease” is a part of the successful fulfillment of the condition.
