The correct answer is option E. After sleeping for about an hour, Jose enters a phase of paradoxical sleep and is most likely to have very relaxed muscles. REM (Rapid Eye Movement) is also known as paradoxical sleep because of the presence of active brainwaves, which means the brain is active despite the appearance that a person is fast asleep.

REM sleep is the last and the shortest sleep stage. It occurs more often towards the end of sleep. A person in REM sleep does not have slower brain waves, does not talk or slow breathing. Therefore, only option E is correct.

Paradoxical sleep is a very deep sleep, sometimes referred to as REM sleep, where dreaming and rapid eye movement occurs. All your muscles are relaxed except for the muscles in and around the eyes and the diaphragm.

There is intense brain activity during this stage of sleep, and it usually comes on towards morning, presents itself several times, and is the shortest portion of the sleep cycle. REM is a crucial stage of the sleep cycle, and if you do not enter this stage, you may feel sleep deprived. Without this deep sleep, the person is unaware of how long they have slept or that they have slept at all and they are aware of there surroundings while they are sleeping.

This is known as stage 1 sleep and wakefulness. Sometimes, your physician may suggest melatonin or prescribe a sleep aid to counteract this insomnia and allow you to go to deep sleep.
