    C. Yes, Mr. A is liable for nepotism since he has direct supervision of his sister.
    Explanation

Nepotism refers to the favoritism shown towards relatives in the workplace, particularly in matters of hiring and promotions. In this case, Mr. A's direct supervision of his sister creates a conflict of interest and the potential for unfair treatment, making him liable for nepotism.

    Explanation
    In many jurisdictions, nepotism policies apply to situations where individuals in positions of authority can influence the employment conditions or decisions (such as hiring, promotions, supervision, etc.) of relatives, including in educational settings like schools. If Mr. Y, as the principal, has direct supervision over his brother or played a role in his hiring, he could be found liable for nepotism, depending on the specific regulations and policies of the Civil Service Commission and the applicable laws.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Will be charged with violence.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Will be charged with violence" because harming a student and leaving marks on their body is a clear act of violence. Regardless of Mr. K's position as the headmaster of the school, he should be held accountable for his actions. Being an authorized person does not exempt someone from facing consequences for their violent behavior. Therefore, Mr. K should be charged with violence for harming the student.
