    accepting offer with condition

    Which of the following expressions demonstrates that a speaker is accepting an offer with a condition in a negotiation?

    a. Even with the discounts offered, the price quoted is still beyond our budget
    b. If you could lengthen the duration of payment to three months, then we have a deal.
    c. I’m afraid that would not meet our requirements on the price.
    We do not have sufficient number in stock for the colour you want. Would you consider a different colour instead?



    i think the answer is b but i am not sure

    Yes, b is correct.
    Please remember to capitalise "I" and punctuate your sentences.

    Don't be sorry for your mistakes but don't repeat them, especially directly under the message pointing one of them out!

    Always capitalise the word "I".
