It really depends on the contract, the contradicting clauses, the purpose and interpretation of each "clause," who drafted the contract/exhibit, and what type of extrinsic evidence (outside evidence) is available to interpret each clause. You should really consult with an attorney regarding the issue.

I am afraid that a contract must be read in its entirety, it is not possible to answer without a review of the language and contract in question.
