What is a 212(a)(6)(c)(1) refusal of visa?

Question details

My entry into the United States was denied a few months back, and my H1B visa was canceled saying that I need to re-apply for a new visa and I agreed to that. A few days back I attended an interview on H4, but the interviewer was asking about the canceled visa and gave me a refusal worksheet Section 212(a)(6)(c)(1). I'm wondering what's happening here, could you please help me with this?

Having a 212(a)(6)(i) denial, which is related to fraud or misrepresentation in obtaining an immigration benefit, is a severe issue because it results in a permanent ban from entering the United States. This can occur in various situations, such as visa applications, petitions, or misrepresentation at the airport, involving both written and oral misrepresentations.

The problem lies in the fact that this ban is permanent, and obtaining a waiver is complex and challenging. The availability of waivers is limited, making these cases extremely difficult to resolve once you're caught in a 212(a)(6)(i) situation.
