Query: In example no 3, the contract is discharged or becomes void  ?, what is the difference?

Response: Discharge of contract means termination of the contractual relationship between the parties. A contract is said to be discharged when it ceases to operate, i.e., when the rights and obligations created by it come to an end.

A contract may be discharged because it becomes void . It may also become discharged because it has been performed. It may also become discharged because parties cancelled it. So discharge is very broad term as compared to just void.

Query: In invalid grounds what is the difference between point 1 and 2?

Response: The points are not mutually exclusive. The same circumstances may be described as both.
