Correct Answer

sadly the answer is factitious disorder.
The qbank said that the patient manipulates the test but it is not written why he did it, so that is why it is factitious disorder cos nobody knows the reason why he did it.
But if it is written that the patient manipulated the test for secondary gain for example so as not to be deployed to a war zone, then it is malingering

C) Malingering wouldn't make sense, the question stem makes no mention of a secondary gain..
