Answer: B. Deviant behavior could be a response to inequalities in capitalist society.
Conflict theorists believe that conflict arises in society as a result of the competition for scarce or limited resources. The general conflict theory is built on the belief that the maintenance of social order in society is being done using the effort of domination and power and not by consensus and conformity. The wealthy and powerful individuals in a society will, by all means, try to keep up with that status and this will lead to them suppressing the poor and powerless. This, according to the conflict theory, is the main cause of deviant behavior among individuals in a society.
