Maria and Julie are friends who are working in a finance company. Julie comes to know that her boss Arunachalam is planning a fraud to dupe the depositors of their money. She tells Maria about it. Julie is loyal to Arunachalam and is reluctant to make his plans public. Maria is alarmed that if Arunachalam goes through with his plan, the company's financial stability will be threatened and will endanger the jobs of the employees besides ruining the depositors. She gathers courage and tips off the chief financial officer (CFO). Thereafter, the story ends happily with the CFO foiling the designs of Arunachalam.


What could be the most appropriate reaction to what Maria did?

  1. Maria should have kept quiet about the whole matter.
  2. Maria's action is totally justified.
  3. Maria has been disloyal to her friend.
  4. Maria should not have become privy to the story or left it to Julie to act in whatever way she likes.
