(a) In this case, the daughter does not have the freedom of choice, hence this is undemocratic.

(b) The teacher may be involved in thinking about an important topic and hence is asking the student not to disturb her. It cannot be said with surety whether the teacher’s request is democratic or not.

(c) The employee is asking for a fundamental right and hence it is democratic.
