The missing bit for me was "in a year from when?" So I would clarify
Replace clause c with "c) if a year has passed, starting from the
proposal of a general resolution, without any general resolution
receiving the required number of seconds, this resolution expires and
the required number of seconds returns to K."
I would second that.
