    It is generally agreed that laws and policies and their associated penalties only deter if three conditions are met: fear of penalty; the probability of being caught; the probability of penalty being administered.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that for laws and policies to effectively deter individuals from engaging in prohibited behavior, three conditions must be met. First, individuals must have a fear of the potential penalty that they may face if caught. Second, there must be a reasonable probability of individuals being caught for their actions. Lastly, there must be a reasonable probability that the penalty will actually be administered if someone is caught. If these three conditions are met, then laws and policies can effectively act as deterrents. Therefore, the statement is true.
