In the Maple Hill school district, a **Five-Day Suspension** occurs when a student is not permitted to attend school for ﬁve days for (1) physically assaulting another student, a teacher, or a school employee or (2) willfully destructing or defacing school property. Which situation below is the best example of a Five-Day Suspension?

**a.** |
Lillian gets caught cheating on a math test for the second time and is suspended from school. |

**b.** |
Marc is asked to leave the classroom due to his constant disruptions. |

**c.** |
Ms. Farmer tells her class that students who fail the midterm exam will be expected to stay after school for tutoring help. |

**d.** |
The count is two balls and two strikes as Mario waits for the next pitch. |

c. Although choices a and c both describe suspensions,only choice c describes a suspension that is the result of one of the two scenarios given in the deﬁnition of a ﬁve-day suspension (physical assault or destructing or defacing school property). Therefore, we can assume that Franny’s suspension,which is the result of spray painting school property, will be a ﬁve-day suspension. Since the deﬁnition doesn’t provide any information about suspensions for cheating, we can assume that Lillian’s suspension does not fall into the ﬁve-day suspension category.
