The correct answer to this question is B. Maslow was pointing out that motivations come in many varieties, from the basic motivations of obtaining food and water to the security needs such as obtaining shelter and physical safety, on up to the higher motives involved with self-actualization. This diagram is built like a triangle, with basic needs as the base and more advanced needs at the top.

People are more likely to pay attention to the higher needs when they have taken care of the lower needs. For example, a person who has fame and fortune, but is still unhappy, might start thinking seriously about the meaning of life and how to obtain fulfillment of spiritual needs.
