    Correct Answer
    D. Pressure, opportunity, rationalization.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is pressure, opportunity, and rationalization. Research has shown that these three conditions are necessary for fraud to occur. Pressure refers to the financial or emotional stress that motivates someone to commit fraud.

Rationalization refers to the cognitive process by which individuals justify their fraudulent actions to themselves, often by convincing themselves that their behavior is necessary or justified. These three conditions working together create an environment conducive to fraud.
