A law that is not consistently enforced does not serve its purpose. Law without enforcement is not law, it is merely stature-a promise of law. To institute real law is not merely to declare that such and such behaviour is forbidden, it is also to punish those who violate that edict. Furthermore, those who enforce law must punish without favour for their friends or malice for their enemies. To punish only those own dislike while forgiving others is not to enforce law but to engage in the arbitrary and unjust exercise of power.

The main point of the passage is that instituting real law consists in
(A) the exercise of power
(B) authorizing the enforcement of punishments
(C) the unbiased punishment of prohibited behaviour
(D) understanding the purpose of law
(E) clearly defining unacceptable behaviour

KUDOS will encourage me to post new questions

(A) the exercise of power -- misses the context
(B) authorizing the enforcement of punishments --- yes but partial idea not the main theme
(C) the unbiased punishment of prohibited behaviour -- bingo
(D) understanding the purpose of law -- the write up is about how to achieve this purpose
(E) clearly defining unacceptable behaviour -- too vague
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA
