Dear Student

We welcome you for writing us.

The definition of consideration states that it a something in exchange. You are required to explore what law says about value of consideration. For example a person arranges a labourer for 8 hours working in exchange or Rs.20. Would Rs.20 be accepted by law as a consideration?
