(1) Was Taylors' option, as the defendants now claimed and the plaintiffs contest, void against the defendants for want of registration?
(2) If so, were the defendants estopped as against Taylors from relying on this ground of invalidity having regard to the expenditure incurred by Taylors with the defendants' concurrence?
(3) If the option was unenforceable against the defendants, had it nevertheless been 'exercised' for the purpose of the break and renewal clauses in the lease of 1949 to Olds?
(4) If it had not, were the defendants estopped as against Olds from relying on the invalidity of an option which in their own grants they had asserted to be subsisting?
