Answer is D

as PM - first you need to confront problem - and find ways for solution. Refusing to work on presentation does not seems valid option.

Its bit gray one... yes we need to look our for negative words like refuse to suspect. I did not get option C well... like what are we the other manager doing in it... may be just presenting the presentation without modification. So it looks good to go when we compare others

I will go with option D because of Responsibility- report unethical behavior and violation. I believe if we go with C then you will be doing an unethical behavior and it can be reported in the contrary.
