(c) The authority of a partner has been cancelled through the other partners, so and such particular partner purports to contract regards a third party so the third party concerned cannot hold such firm liable whether he knew of the cancellation of authority then like the firm can be held liable.

(d) A partner, without special authority, presented a guarantee or signs like a bill of exchange or endorses or makes a promissory note, or pledges goods or  borrows money -  like in the name of the firm - so hence the firm will not be bound as these acts are not in the customary course of the business of the firm. Whether with a trading firm, any partner may bind the firm on bills of exchange however, promissory notes, or on a contract for borrow money on behalf about the firm.  Make in mind that this applies to trading firms barely i.e. like  firms whose business is the selling  or buying of goods.
