I have no idea... Isn't everyone afraid of public speaking? There was a "study" made by Dale Carnegie back in the 1930's that says that public speaking is the #1 fear of people. I'm not sure if I can classify it as "phobia" though...

Anyways, I'll go D. Just a wild, wild guess.

The correct answer is A.

Trypanophobia (also termed aichmophobia, belonephobia, or enetophobia but most commonly called needle phobia) is the extreme, irrational fear of injections or hypodermic needles. Needle phobia is thought have genetic origins and a possible evolutionary advantage in view of the fact that historically, humans who avoided stab and puncture wounds had a greater chance of survival.
