    The answer is d) social control theory.

    Explanation:

    Social control theory is an explanation to deviant behaviour that states shared social values, beliefs and moral codes prevent people from engaging in antisocial activities, such as crime.

    Sociologist Ivan Nye recognised three variants of control.

    Indirect: the person refrains from commiting crime because he or she is afraid of punishment; Direct: the person is aware others may suffer with those actions; and Internal: the person actually believes the actions are wrong.
