5.The ice cream store sells various levels of ice cream supplied by its supplier,Ultimate Creamery.Ultimate Creamery has three levels of ice cream they supply:the BASIC level that includes ice cream bars and sandwiches;INTERMEDIATE level that includes various flavors of ice cream that can be scooped for cones and cups;and SUPREME level that includes various superior quality and unique flavors of ice cream that can be scooped for cones and cups.There is confusion on the pricing between the business and the supplier.Ultimate’s catalogue shows the prices of all three levels of ice cream.The catalogue also shows discounts when certain amounts of EACH level are purchased.It is unclear when those amounts are counted.The contract calls for Ultimate to supply and the business to purchase all three levels of ice cream.The contract says that the parties should refer to the catalogue for pricing and quantities.The catalogue and the contract does not say when the discount occurs.The business says that they should always receive the discount because they have bought the total required amounts,even though the purchase occurred over the period of two months.However,Ultimate says that the business has to buy the required amounts on each order.which resolution you would advise your friend to use and which two are not as good a solution.
