    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Source of Conflicts are Competing interests ( territory, resources)
    Explanation
    The given answer, "Source of Conflicts are Competing interests (territory, resources)", does not represent Idealism. Idealism is a philosophical belief that emphasizes the importance of ideas and values in shaping the world. It promotes peace, cooperation, and the pursuit of common goals based on shared principles. The other options mentioned in the question, such as "Peace in the world according to principals of nations" and "Motivated by Values and Principals", align with the principles of Idealism by emphasizing the importance of peace and values in international relations. However, the option about conflicts arising from competing interests goes against the ideals of Idealism, which seeks to transcend such conflicts through cooperation and shared values.
