Explanation & AnswerSolution by a verified expert

Explanation

Individual A made the purchase for Product H from Individual T by ordering it in Individual A's name in place of the name of Individual P. It paves way for undisclosed principal as Individual T believed that Individual A was the principal. Individual T can recover the price from either Individual P or Individual A. However, it is not possible to get recovery from both of them. If Individual A bought the order in the name of Individual P, who is the actual principal, this would not have been the case. The principal would have been disclosed, and the case would not prevail.

Verified Answer

Individual T has the right to recover the price of the Product H from either Individual P or Individual A on the grounds of an undisclosed principal.
