Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The 2012 edition of a pin-up calendar featuring bare-chested former Mormon missionaries will be the last printing of the controversial project which prompted the excommunication of its creator by the church. What else happened to creator Chad Hardy?

    • A.

      He had to declare bankruptcy

    • B.

      He was arrested by the SLC police

    • C.

      He got his BYU diploma revoked

    • D.

      His wife left him

    Correct Answer
    C. He got his BYU diploma revoked
    Explanation
    The passage states that the creator of the pin-up calendar featuring former Mormon missionaries was excommunicated by the church. As a result, it can be inferred that his actions were not in line with the beliefs and values of the church. Since Brigham Young University (BYU) is a private university owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), it is reasonable to assume that the creator's actions would have consequences at the university as well. Therefore, it can be inferred that he got his BYU diploma revoked.
