Final Answer :
True
Explanation :
According to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Section 2-314, when a seller is making a sale of goods, there is an implied warranty of merchantability that the goods are fit for their intended use. In order to disclaim this warranty, the term "merchantability" must be mentioned explicitly in the disclaimer. Otherwise, the disclaimer may not be legally effective.
