@zaasmi said in MGT611 GDB 1 Solution and Discussion:
Mr. Qasim is running a shop of new watches. He is also studying as a private student under the supervision of a teacher. One day his teacher come to his shop and selects an expensive beautiful watch for himself. However, he (teacher) insists to buy the watch at a price which is quite low than the market price of that watch. Mr. Qasim would never sell that watch at the low stated price to any customer but due to the respect of his teacher, allows him to buy it at a price quoted by his teacher. His teacher buys the watch and leaves the shop.

(a) A’s son has forged B’s name to a promissory note. B, under threat of prosecuting A’s son, obtains a bond from A for the amount of the forged note.
If B sues on this bond, the Court may set the bond aside.
(b) A, a money-lender, advances Taka 100 to B, an agriculturist, and, by undue influence, induces B to execute a bond for Taka 200 with interest at 6
per cent per month. The Court may set the bond aside, ordering B to repay the
Taka 100 with such interest as may seem just.]
