Best answer

A. Specificity.  This is asking for opposites.



Direct, to the point, purposeful in relating
Precise, blunt, definitive and transparent
Principles and consistent moral stands independent of the person being addressed
Indirect, circuitous, seemingly "aimless" forms of relating
Evasive, tactful, ambiguous, even opaque
Highly situational morality depending upon the person and context encountered
