    C. Compulsory social service
    Explanation
    Forced labor and trafficking in human beings are examples of situations where individuals are exploited and forced to work against their will, often in deplorable conditions. These examples align with the concept of a beggar, as they involve individuals who are in desperate situations and are forced to rely on others for their basic needs. However, compulsory social service is not an example of a beggar because it typically refers to a mandatory period of community service or volunteering that individuals are required to complete as part of their civic duty. It does not involve individuals being forced into labor or relying on others for their basic needs.
