The Concentrate Questions and Answers series offers the best preparation for tackling exam questions. Each book includes typical questions, answer plans and suggested answers, author commentary, and other features. This chapter explores the terms of the contract. It contains questions and answers concerning express and implied terms, how terms are to be identified, and how they are to be classified in order to determine what consequences flow from their breach. The chapter also considers two key debates: the basis on which the courts imply terms into contracts, and whether the courts approach the classification of terms highlights a tension in the law between certainty and justice.
