          Hi Flybi. As stated correctly by AnonymourWorm, Anxiety is a psychological response, as is apprehension and fear so answer A is the only one where there are only physiological responses and no psychological. A child going to the dentist for the second time after a bad experience the first time, would potentially experience apprehension, fear and anxiety. All of these are cognitive but they would trigger the physiological response of crying, increased heart rate, shaking, nausea etc.
