    D. Heart Yin Deficiency
    Explanation
    Heart Yin Deficiency is the correct answer because the key symptoms described, such as palpitations, insomnia, feeling of heat, poor memory, and anxiety, are all indicative of a deficiency of Yin in the heart. Yin represents the cooling and nourishing aspect of the body, and when it is deficient, it can lead to symptoms of heat, restlessness, and agitation. This imbalance can disrupt the normal functioning of the heart, leading to palpitations and poor sleep. Additionally, the poor memory and anxiety can be attributed to the lack of nourishment and grounding provided by Yin.

    • A.

      True

    • B.
