states that Dacia may have the first option to purchase each
of his paintings within 30 days after completion, at $1,000
per painting. Dacia submits an offer in writing that indicates
her acceptance, but stipulates that if she’s unsatisfied with a
painting after purchase, she may return the painting for a full
refund within 10 days of delivery. Dacia and Reed are considered
merchants under the Uniform Commercial Code. What is
the result of these events?

become part of the contract.

become part of the contract.
D. No contract is formed, and Dacia’s offer is treated as a
rejection of Reed’s offer.

purchase a 1995 Chevrolet automobile from John for $2,000. John expressly told Lisa
that the motor in the automobile was bad, along with the clutch and brakes. Further,
John told Lisa that she would probably need to have the automobile repaired immediately
upon leaving the dealership. Lisa purchased the automobile despite its problems.
However, Lisa became disgruntled because the costs of the repairs were more than she
expected. She filed suit against John for breach of warranty. The most likely result will
be that Lisa will
A. win, because the implied warranty of merchantability was violated.
B. win, because the implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose was violated.
C. lose, because no warranties were violated.

Jack accepts the goods. However, the next day, Jack determines that the video games
aren’t premium video games at all, but are merely 10-year-old video games that
Barbara has recycled. Jack then notifies Barbara that he revokes his acceptance. Just
two hours after Jack notifies Barbara of this fact, the video games are struck by lightning
and destroyed. The most likely result will be that
A. Jack bears the risk of loss, because he accepted the shipment.
B. Jack bears the risk of loss, because the buyer always bears the risk of loss.
