Logic & Reasoning

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.
  1. 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.
