Choice (A) is the answer.

Conduct disorder is characterized by antisocial behavior that violates the rights of others. Fighting, vandalizing, disregard for authority, lying, cheating, and stealing are all characteristic of conduct disorder. Pyromania and cruelty to animals are commonly seen with conduct disorder. There is a lack of empathy and remorse. The diagnosis of conduct disorder is made in individuals younger than 18 years of age. Conduct disorder is associated with both ADHD (Choice B) and learning disabilities (Choice C). The diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder (Choice D) can be made when an individual is 18 years old or older. For those who do not meet criteria for conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder (Choice E) should be considered. Oppositional defiant disorder is characterized by disregard for authority and angry outbursts. Kids with oppositional defiant disorder are often in trouble at school and have difficulty making friends. They are easily annoyed and often lose their temper. Disobeying rules is common, as well as arguing with others. Oppositional defiant behaviors must occur with more frequency than other kids of the same age and developmental level to make the diagnosis.
