C

Sacrilege

D

Slander

Answer

We call something "sacrilegious" when it damages something we regard as sacred or holy. For example, Making a mocking picture of Jesus is an example of something that would be described as a sacrilege.Hence, Option B is correct. The rest of the options do not express this meaning, hence incorrect.
