    Correct Answer
    B. During each formal count, but not less than twice per shift.
    Explanation
    During each formal count, but not less than twice per shift, the cell doors of T-dormitories, butterfly-dorms, and other housing units with secure sliding doors and locking mechanisms will be visually inspected or physically checked. This ensures that the doors are functioning properly and securely. Additionally, control panels will be observed by staff for any malfunctions. This regular inspection and checking process helps maintain the safety and security of the housing units.
