The correct answer is C.

In addition to the above-mentioned symptoms, pre-test anxiety may cause irritability, change in appetite resulting in overeating or inability to eat, difficulty concentrating and disturbed sleep. When students are adequately prepared for a test and suffer pre-test anxiety, it is generally because they are holding themselves to excessively high standards. Pre-test anxiety symptoms may be ameliorated using stress management techniques such as yoga breathing or progressive muscle relaxation.
