Option (b)

REASON: The terms of sales contract strictly mention that the company is not liable for any consequential damages suffered by any consumer as a result of using the power tools purchased from them.

This statement states that, no matter what incident takes place, TFY is not liable to pay any compensation to the consumer.

In the above case study,

Harry is a CONSUMER. He bought that table saw for his personal use, i.e., he agreed to the terms of the sales contract, and thus, accordingly has no right to enforce the consequential damages provision on the company.
