Question 7 The Sophists, who were known as respected teachers

Resolved Question:

Question 7
The Sophists, who were known as respected teachers in ancient Greece, became vilified through time, and now have the negative words "sophist" and "sophistry" associated with them, because: 

They emphasized that there was no universal truth in morality, ethics, justice, and religion.
They placed an emphasis on debate, rhetorical skills, and argumentation regardless of any underlying truth.
They were known as the first business consultants and emphasized making money and securing power by whatever means necessary, and then getting good publicity for being socially responsible.
All of the above.

Which of the following is true about modern business corporations?

The societal expectation is that a corporation should just make money legally and not worry about the local community or society.
Since the corporation is not a real person it can never be judged from an ethical point of view.
The corporate vice-president of ethics has the power to veto what he or she considers as immoral corporate actions, but the veto can be overridden by a two-thirds vote of the board of directors.
None of the above.

Corporate ethics codes and ethics departments today are:

Usually required for all corporations by Congressional legislation in the United States.
In the long-term ethical egoistic interest of the corporation.
Indications to the corporation's stakeholders that it is committed to moral behavior.
