Psyche Falling asleep when she hears the tape of ocean sounds

A 43-year-old woman is having difficulty falling asleep. Her physician advises her to listen to a 30-minute tape of ocean sounds and then go through a series of relaxation exercises every night prior to going to sleep. Two weeks later, the patient reports that she falls asleep as soon as she hears the sounds on the tape, even without doing the relaxation exercises. Falling asleep when she hears the tape is most likely to be due to which of the following:

(A) punishment
(B) negative reinforcement
(C) positive reinforcement
(D) shaping
(E) classical conditioning
(F) extinction
(G) sensitization
(H) habituation
