a. Generally, courts will refuse to enforce contracts that involve illegal activities.

b. Generally, courts will refuse to enforce contracts that are determined to be contrary to public policy.

c. Both I and II

d. Neither I nor II

a. Many contracts contain express conditions. These are certain things that must happen before one of the parties is expected to perform his obligations under the contract.

b. Under a contract for the construction of a building, if the builder only substantially performs--but doesn’t completely perform--his contractual obligations, the other party has no further obligations under the contract whatsoever.

c. Neither consequential nor punitive damages can be awarded in most breach of contract cases.

d. If a party agreeing to perform a personal service under a contract breaches the contract, that party may be ordered by a court to perform the service.
