Q1. A talented cricket player gave trial for his selection in the state level team, but somehow he was not able to perform his best, yet he remained in close contact with some of the probable candidates. He was very keen to ascertain his selection and tried to meet some of the people who were close to the selection committee. One such person told him that if the player pays some bribe, he can convince some of the members of the selection committee for his selection. The player was in a dilemma because the money to be paid was a large sum, but he had a modest background; selection was not sure even after paying; and more than this his conscience was not in favour of selection in team through bribe. Discuss the various options cricketer has? Which option is best? Justify. [20marks] 250 words.
