Hi I just has a question about silence in a contract. If two people are on the phone regarding a contract and person A says that they will think about it and let them know on Monday. Then if person B says if I don't hear back from you I will assume that you have agreed and person A does not answer and the phone call ends will this form a contract if person B doesn't hear back from person A by Monday?

Not at all - in fact, it's quite the opposite; when someone makes you an offer and you don't respond to it, for the most part you won't be bound by the contract. Silence does not constitute as an acceptance.

not generally, but depends if the parties have a regular course of dealings where it’s understood that silence is an acceptable form of acceptance or it has been implied that the contract is accepted by the offeree (they use the product, there’s a lapse in time etc).
