b) the entity of the lack of conformity;

c) whether the alternative remedy could be completed without significant inconvenience for the consumer. Repairs or replacements must be completed within a reasonable time of the request and must not cause any significant inconvenience to the consumer, taking into account the nature of the good and the purpose for which the consumer has purchased the good.

d) if the consumer has already requested a specific remedy, the seller is obliged to implement it, with the necessary consequences in order to effect the appropriate period referred to in paragraph 5 (2), subject to acceptance by the consumer of the proposed alternative remedy;

e) if the consumer has not already requested a specific remedy, the consumer must accept the offer or reject it choosing another remedy according to this article.
