A. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) of zero??? Rest other features are present in AN, even found in males albeit at lower rates I think.

Hmmm....least consistent with the diagnosis is what they are asking. Well, while that could be true as it means denial of disorder, not sure if it is the least consistent with the diagnosis. Any other takers?
