Analyzing a contract

A 4 paragraph in 2 papers analyzing a contract, merely reference the title of the contract (which is Sale of Goods Agreement) in the report. A four paragraph typed summary of the contract must be attached which discusses any features of the contract that were covered in the text. The first paragraph is to be a summary of the entire contract. Please note that I said a summary - which means an overview of the contract and not a detailed description. Your summary paragraph should not be much longer than the 3 other paragraphs. I'm looking for an overview of the contract and not what each section is about. The other three paragraphs are to be used to discuss and analyze three different clauses in the contract (one per paragraph) and how they relate to the textbook. Be sure and indicate which paragraph in the contract you are discussing, e.g., #1 of the contract talks about x, y, and z. I am looking for an analysis of how each clause relates to the class material. Little or no analysis will result in bad situation. Summarizing the clause is not an analysis. Show me that you understand how this clause functions in the "real world." I want to see that you understand the legal consequences of each clause you are discussing and not just paraphrasing the contract wording. Hypothetical examples are an easy way of showing this. You must also refer by page or chapter to the part(s) of the text you are using.
Discussing the formation of a contract is not acceptable unless it is a clause in the contract. In other words, Express/Implied Contracts, Offer; Acceptance; Consideration; Bilateral; etc., are not clauses in most contracts. I also take into account the difficulty of the subject matter you have attempted. It is easy to talk about "termination" of a contract. It is more complex to talk about "subrogation" or "risk of loss".
My text book that you have to use is (Business Law TEXT & EXERCISES SEVENTH EDITION Miller & Hollowell, Thomson/West Publishers). If you are using an example from the text, be sure to reference that.
Here the contract that you will write about it. I chose a blank contract because is more easy to write about it and you don't have to fill the contract.

The sale of goods agreement mainly involves two or more parties that come into a contract of selling and buying the goods at the prices set by the mutual decision of the seller and the buyer (Klotz, 2008). The agreement involves certain key processes including invoice payments, delivery of goods and risk of loss, disclaimer of warranty, limitation of liability and actions, security interest, and the governing laws.
