Answer:

Since the principle of estoppel is not applicable to minor, even if a minor by misrepresenting his age as a major, induces a party to contract with him, such contract is also void.

 

But if the benefits received are still with the minor, then the Court may order the return of the benefit to the other party. This is known as restitution.

 

In the given problem, since the minor falsely represented to B that he is a major and purchased some goods on credit, B may recover the price from A.  If goods purchased on credit still lies with the minor, the Court may order the return of them to the person who sent them to the minor.
