    Correct Answer(s)

    C. Making a purchase or business choice to boost a business that you have a stake in
    E. Starting a company that provides services similar to your full time employer.
    Explanation
    The answer is correct because all of the listed actions would constitute a conflict of interest. Hiring an unqualified relative to provide necessary services for the company is a conflict because it prioritizes personal relationships over the company's best interests. Failing to disclose a relationship with a job candidate being considered for hiring can lead to biased decision-making. Making a purchase or business choice to benefit a business that you have a stake in is a clear conflict of interest as it undermines fair competition. Starting a company that provides similar services to your full-time employer can create a conflict by competing with your employer.
