Option A is the right answer.

liable(adj): legally responsible | Source: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/liable?s=t

If someone deliberately damages your property, they are legally responsible to pay for the cost of repairs.

Option B and D are incorrect because no one can be “forced” or “compelled” into anything.

Option C is incorrect because a request can either be accepted or denied. The right course of law is what matters.
