    • A.

    Correct Answer
    B. Is afraid
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "is afraid" because being afraid refers to feeling fear or anxiety about something that may harm or hurt a person. In this context, the person is described as being frightened, which aligns with the definition of being afraid. Shyness and alertness do not necessarily imply fear or being frightened, so they are not the correct choices.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "He is alert" because the statement mentions that the security guard is "always watching and ready to notice anything unusual or dangerous." This indicates a state of being alert and attentive to his surroundings, which is a crucial quality for a security guard. The other options, "He is happy" and "He is hungry," are not supported by the given information and are unrelated to the guard's role and responsibilities.

    Correct Answer
    B. An intense fear of certain situations, activities or things
    Explanation
    A phobia is an intense fear of certain situations, activities, or things. Phobias are characterized by a persistent and irrational fear that is disproportionate to the actual danger posed by the feared object or situation. People with phobias often go to great lengths to avoid the object of their fear, and their fear can cause significant distress and interference in their daily lives. This intense fear is what distinguishes a phobia from a general fear or anxiety.

    When you are very worried about something, you are anxious. Anxiety is a feeling of unease, nervousness, or worry about something that is about to happen or that might happen in the future. It is a common emotional response to stress or fear. Shyness refers to being timid or reserved in social situations, while luck is a random occurrence that brings good fortune. Therefore, anxious is the most appropriate term to describe the state of being very worried.
