sorry : a. When the item is placed on the counter at the cash register ; no consideration has been exchanged at that point. So the contract is not complete.

section52 :

b. As soon as the store keeper displays the item with its sale price and proper description. ; this is an invitation to treat only

section52 :

d. When a customer removes it from the shelf with the intention of purchasing it. ; again - no consideration has passed at this point

section52 :

e. Only upon issue of a tax invoice to the customer ; this step postdates the performance of the contract and is an optional step.
