Both answers were wrong too ..
1 C.not liable
2 D.Promissory estoppels
4 out of the 10 were wrong.I have given the right answers.
I disagree with the "correct" answers. Of course you do not have to rate/pay for the answers I provided. However I do suggest that you dispute the test results.

You can read the definition of promissory estoppel at this link:

I explained the reasoning for enforcing the contract for #1.
