    Correct Answer
    A. Having good life skills eliminates the need for self-esteem.
    Explanation
    The given answer states that having good life skills eliminates the need for self-esteem. However, this statement is incorrect because self-esteem is a separate psychological concept that is not replaced or eliminated by having good life skills. Self-esteem refers to one's overall evaluation of their worth and value as a person, while life skills refer to a set of abilities and behaviors that help individuals navigate and succeed in daily life. Both self-esteem and life skills are important for personal and professional growth, but they are not interchangeable.
