S1: For all x ( either x does not cheats OR everyone will suffer) so it is not correct representation since everyone can suffer even if x does not cheats.

S2:If there exist at least one $x$ that cheats then everyone suffers.

so  only S2 is correct.

Answer they gave is A.
S1 is exact representation of it. But S2 seems fine to me.
how s1 can be correct. It is an OR gate so either one of them can be true.
