How to cross refer section 3 with other sections within Contracts Act 1950?<br />Find other sections that can be related with the contents of section 3.<br />For example, section 3 talks about methods of communicating offer & acceptance.<br />So, the next section that relate with section 3 may be section 4. <br />Why?
