    Correct Answer
    C. Pol Pot
    Explanation
    In the given context, the correct answer is Pol Pot. The statement mentions factional struggles and armed attempts to topple, which aligns with the actions and history of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia during the 1970s. Pol Pot led a brutal regime that resulted in the deaths of millions of Cambodians through forced labor, executions, and genocide. The mention of Osama bin Laden and Khang Khek seems unrelated to the given information and historical context.

      Pol Pot

    • C.

      Khmer Rogue

    • D.

      Tuol Sleng

    Correct Answer
    A. Khang Khek leu
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Khang Khek leu because the question asks about the person who operated the prison camp at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. Khang Khek leu was one of the top leaders of the Khmer Rouge and was responsible for overseeing the prison camp where torture methods were used. Pol Pot was the leader of the Khmer Rouge, but he did not directly operate the prison camp. Khmer Rogue is a misspelling of Khmer Rouge, which was the name of the communist regime in Cambodia. Tuol Sleng is the name of the prison camp itself, not the person who operated it.
