Mr Dong, the majority shareholder of Lide Company, provided his residential house as a mortgage for a loan agreement between Lide Company and the Bank. Both parties appropriately registered the loan agreement and the mortgage agreement with the relevant government agent.
Before the loan agreement matured, Mr Dong intended to sell the mortgaged house to Ms Lee and disclosed to Ms Lee the fact that the house had been mortgaged. Mr Dong also notified the Bank with respect to the transaction between Ms Lee and himself. Mr Dong and Ms Lee entered into a sales contract of real estate to proceed with the transaction. However, their application for registration was denied by the relevant government authority, because the Bank did not give consent in writing to this transaction.

(a) State whether the real estate contract was a valid one if the Bank disagrees with the transaction between Mr Dong and Ms Lee. (2 marks)
(b) Explain whether the government authority should register the contract if Ms Lee promises to repay the outstanding amount of the loan, even though the Bank did not give consent to this transaction. (2 marks)

Food Shop sent a fax to Sanyi Farm to inquire about the price of tomatoes as follows: ‘100,000 kg of tomatoes is urgently needed. Reply as soon as possible.’
Upon receipt of the fax, Sanyi Farm shipped 100,000 kg of tomatoes to Food Shop. The latter took delivery of the goods without any objection. On selling the goods Food Shop found that the quality of tomatoes did not meet the standard required and had to sell the goods at a 20% discount. Food Shop considered that there was no contract between the two parties, since its fax to Sanyi Farm did not contain the price, which was one of the essential factors to be an effective offer.
In accordance with the Contract Law:
(a) Explain the legal nature of the fax sent by Food Shop. (2 marks)
(b) Describe the legal nature of the act to take delivery of the goods by Food Shop. (2 marks)

Zhao, Qian, Sun and Lee were four shareholders of a limited liability company specialising in bio-technology, each holding 25% of the shares of the company.
Several months later Qian intended to transfer his shares to a listed company for profit and sent notices to the other three shareholders asking for their consent. Zhao agreed and also expressed his willingness to buy Qian’s shares if the price was reasonable. Sun disagreed and claimed his right of priority to buy Qian’s shares. However, Zhao and Sun could not reach an agreement as to the proportion of shares to buy. Lee kept silent upon receipt of the notice.
Since Sun offered a price lower than that of the listed company, Qian entered into a contract to sell his shares to the listed company, which caused a dispute among the four shareholders. Under such circumstances, Lee decided to leave the company and requested the company to purchase his shares.
In accordance with the relevant provisions of the Company Law:
(a) State how Zhao and Sun’s failure to reach an agreement on the proportion of shares to purchase should be dealt with. (2 marks)
(b) State whether Lee’s request for the company to purchase his shares should be upheld if the dispute was brought to court. (2 marks)
(c) State whether Qian was entitled to transfer his shares to the listed company. (2 marks)
