The correct answer to this question is C.

In this example, you should apologize to the client and withdraw from the bid. Then, you should take disciplinary action against your team members. The management team sets the tone for how the entire company runs on a day-to-day basis. Building on a foundation of ethical behavior helps create long-lasting positive effects for a company, including the ability to attract and retain highly talented individuals, and building and maintaining a positive reputation within the community.

Running a business in an ethical manner from the top down builds a stronger bond between individuals on the management team, further creating stability within the company.
