E.g. A proposes B to sell his house for rs.200000 Sec-2(b)- when the person to whom a proposal is made signifies his assent thereto, the proposal is said to be accepted. A proposal, when accepted, becomes a promise. E.g. A proposes to B to sell his house for rs200000. B sends a letter accepting the proposal. A’s proposal now becomes a promise. Promise
Sec-2(c)- the person making the proposal is called the ‘promisor’ and the person accepting the proposal is called ‘promisee’. E.g. A proposes B to sell his house for rs200000.
