Correct Answer is Anton Chekov.
‘The Bet’, a short story by Anton Chekov, provides a perspective on which is better, capital punishment or life imprisonment. ‘The Bet’ a short story was written by Anton Chekhov in 1889 about a banker and a young lawyer who place a bet after discussing whether the death penalty is better or worse than life in jail.
It is a question of whether the death sentence is preferable to life in prison. As the storey begins, a banker recalls the fifteen-year anniversary of a bet he made. Guests at a party he was throwing that day got into a debate over capital punishment; the banker thought it was more humanitarian than life imprisonment, while a young lawyer disagreed, claiming that he would rather spend his life in prison than die.
