Question: Which of the following is an example of act utilitarian

Which of the following is an example of act utilitarian reasoning and which is an example of rule utilitarian reasoning? Explain your answers.
a. If I do not go to the meeting, then others will not go either. If that happens, then there would not be a quorum for the important vote, which would be bad. Thus, I ought to go to the meeting.
b. If doctors generally lied to their patients about their diagnoses, then patients would lose trust in their doctors. Because that would be bad, I should tell this patient the truth.
c. We ought to keep our promises because it is a valuable practice.
d. If I cheat here, I will be more likely to cheat elsewhere. No one would trust me then. So I should not cheat on this test.
