1.) On August 6, 2017 National Football League professional football player T.O. Owens signed a contract to play for the Seattle Seahawks. Right before the first game of the season, T.O. goes to the owner and says that he will not play unless the owner produces a new hip-hop CD that T.O. wants to record titled “First Misunderstood in San Francisco, Then Philly, Then Dallas, Then Buffalo, Then Cincinnati, Then Allen (Texas), Now Seattle and Soon-to-Be Unemployed and Owing Back Child Support.” The owner, being desperate, agrees.

c. T.O. wins; this is a modification under the U.C.C. which needs no new consideration to be
d. T.O. wins; this is a case of a modification due to unforeseen circumstances, and the modification is
e. Owner wins; T.O. was under a prior duty to play football, so T.O.’s new promise is not supported

a. Mirror image acceptance.
b. Preexisting duty.
d. Accord and satisfaction.
Answer 1-The correct option=
e. The owner wins; T.O. was under a prior duty to play football, so T.O.’s new promise is not supported by consideration
Reason= As the new condition was not related to the conditions mentioned in the prior contract and T.O. has to play the games as the demand of T.O. was not related to his ability or any situation that can hamper the performance thus T.O. 's new demand will not be related to the consideration
Answe2 - Accord and satisfaction.
Reason- Accord and satisfaction can be seen as a legal contract in which the parties to the contract have an agreement to discharge the tort claim or any type of liability provided that they have a negotiated sum that is different from the original sum of the contract
