What made you do a contract? Please tell us where you read or heard it (including the quote, if possible). “Under contract.” Merriam-Webster.com Dictionary, Merriam-Webster, contract www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/under%20. Access 3 Dec 2020. The actual action to give was in the terms of the agreement, the agreement determined the behavior of John Si, on the other hand, we are only talking about an agreement between two people, do not sign something Both versions with “in” and “under” are probably found standard English in newspaper articles, and in general probably bulk up mean the same thing to most people. But are there slight differences in meaning between “in” and “under”? His agreement was that John should give Jane $500. They signed an agreement in which John agreed to give Jane $1000. So if we`re talking about the actual content of the agreement, then use in and when we talk about the resulting actions use “under.” They can be in or under an agreement, so both are valid. Under has an implication that it is a written or legal agreement (similar to something that is “under contract”). When we talk about something that has been signed, we are talking about a legal document. The agreement will contain details of what John promised to do.
If we use specific terminology, the agreement will have the details of the promise in it.
