What is the right answer?

diverting

Technically, the first three of the answer options are valid. If you used any of them, the sentence you end up with would still make sense.

However, there is one phrase that we commonly use when we talk about messing with an institution; this word is subverting. When you subvert something (usually a system or institution), you undermine its authority. You make sure that it does not portray an air of authority like it wants to.

Instead, other people will begin to question their judgment and even rebel against it. When someone says or does something to protest against justice, you can say that they are subverting justice.

The correct sentence should be:

  • If you lie to a judge, you could be found guilty of subverting the course of justice.
