I said A although I don’t think the poll encapsulated the options well. Under extreme or extenuating circumstances I may do something that I consider to be bad, but I typically think that justifiable.
For example if I’m starving to death although I know stealing is bad I’ll likely steal to live. I think that’s justifiable, albeit still wrong. If someone greatly harmed a loved one I may take “justice” into my own hands, and know some people who have. I still think this wrong, but could justify it and am honest enough to admit that I could do it.
For minor things, yes. Like I'll indulge in fast food now and then, even though I know it's bad for me. There's some balance between temptation and conscience there, but I never go too extreme towards the route of temptation to doing truly unconscionable things.

Some lines I don't cross. Others are a little blurry.
My default mode is to do "the right thing".
But I'm also not much for absolutes regarding right/wrong black/white.
Some things are more clear than others.
