Here, option B is the best example of Violating an Apartment Lease, as it describes a tenant who has neglected to pay rent as agreed upon in the legally binding document signed with the landlord.

Option A describes a tenant who is simply choosing not to renew their lease, which is not a violation of the lease agreement.

Option C describes a tenant who is complaining about the apartment, which is not necessarily a violation of the lease agreement.

Option D describes a tenant who is seeking legal advice about a possible issue with the building, which may or may not be related to the lease agreement.

Therefor; the correct statement is Valerie has violated her apartment lease by neglecting to pay her monthly rent as required by the legally binding document she signed with her landlord.
