This breaks down as follows:
The moral act is usually the one that serves the long term interests of a business, so there are often compelling reasons to choose the moral act.
Since this stimulus is followed by a Justify the conclusion question, our task is to find the answer choice that allows the author's conclusion to be properly drawn. In the breakdown above, we can see that both the premise and the conclusion deal with the element of a moral act. The rogue elements are those of "serving the long term interests" and "often compelling reasons," which must be properly linked by the correct answer choice, bringing us to answer choice (B), which essentially provides that long term interests often provide compelling reasons.
Answer choice (C) provides that there is seldom conflict between the moral choice and the choice that serves the long term interests of the company. The author has already established that the moral choice is usually the one which serves the long term interests, and this choice does not link the essential element of "compelling reasons." Basically, the absence of conflict does not necessarily provide compelling reasons to act.
