Solution

'A' is not liable for his act, as it was of trivial nature.

Explanation:

According to the Section 95 of the Indian Penal  Code nothing is an offense by reason that it causes,  or that it is intended to cause, or that it is known to be likely to cause, any harm if that harm is so slight that no person of ordinary sense and temper would complain of such harm. The reasonable conclusion drawn A is not liable for his act, as it was of trivial nature.
