Please see below. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I am expecting more than a “yes” or “no” answer. Even if it doesn’t state, you need to explain why—use the law to help support your answer.
1. Shawn offers to sell Eric his ’62 Impala for $9500 in a letter sent registered mail. Shawn tells Eric that he’ll keep the offer open for twelve days and Eric agrees to think it over. Two days later, Shawn revokes the offer and Eric protests. Is Shawn allowed to do this? Explain.
