what is the answer to this , the theory ? and why ?


2. Bill is the Student Government Association President at a community college who is planning the annual school
barbeque. His budget is extremely limited. If he offers only pork barbeque (no beef or chicken), then he will able to
have enough to serve the entire student population. Both beef and chicken barbeque cost twice as much as pork.
However, 25% of the student population at his college is either Muslim or Jewish (neither of whom eats pork for
religious reasons, nor are they vegetarian). Student government funds come from the student activities fees paid by all
students. Use one of the theories listed above to explain and demonstrate in detail the process Bill should use to
determine whether he should only serve pork. If he adds beef or chicken, he will not have enough food for everyone.
According to your analysis, what would be the morally correct thing for Bill to do? Why? (In other words, for whichever
theory you choose, explain not only the process but the result of having used that process.)
