Q: Which of the following are considered purposes for a moral theory?

a. subjective satisfaction
b. provide pleasure
c. cause pain
d. all of the above
e. none of the above

I have ruled out A and C, which also rule out D, but i am not sure about of the right answer or if i already messed up. Thank u for your time.

While living with a certan moral code may provide a certan subjective satisfaction, it is not the purpose per se. Providing pleasure is not a goal of moral theory as pleasure and morals are in conflict in many situations. leaving e. as the only answer.
