The correct answer is option C - an infraction of the rules by a player or coach.
In basketball, infraction is a violation of rule that can lead to penalty. They usually occur in basketball games.

Fouls in basketball game can result from any illegal contact with opponent or just by moving your anger, frustration and aggression to an opponent can cause a foul.

The normal foul that occurs during basketball is usually the personal foul, which involves insignificant or illegal contact with opponents.

When a personal foul is committed by a player of a team is possession is called offensive foul. penalties that occur during foul play include

1. The player that commit the foul is removed from the game
2. The teams of the foul player losses possession of the ball
3. The fouled player is given free throws

The correct answer to this question is C, An Infraction Of The Rules By A Player, Coach. Fouls are in the sport of basketball. They occur in every basketball game, and everyone from players to fans disagrees on the way fouls are handed out. The most common foul is through physical contact when a defensive player makes illegal contact to the offensive player.

It can also occur through verbal language, like if a player or coach curses at a referee. Another type of foul is a technical foul. This is worst than the standard foul. There are limits on fouls. A player can be ejected after six fouls, and if they get two technical fouls, they can also be ejected.
