    Correct Answer
    D. All of the Above
    Explanation
    Freud's "Dora Experiment" has been criticized for several reasons. Firstly, it has been criticized for its sexism, as Freud's theories often portrayed women as inferior and driven by their sexual desires. Additionally, the experiment lacked scientific validity, as it was based on Freud's subjective interpretations rather than empirical evidence. Lastly, critics argue that Freud showed a lack of compassion towards Ida Bauer, the patient referred to as "Dora," by dismissing her concerns and focusing solely on his own theories. Overall, all of these criticisms contribute to the view that Freud's "Dora Experiment" is flawed and problematic.

      Passion

      Conscious

      Self-identity

    Correct Answer
    C. Unconscious
    Explanation
    The best synonym for "id" is "unconscious" because in psychology, the id refers to the part of the mind that operates on the unconscious level and is driven by basic instinctual desires and needs. It is the source of our primitive impulses and operates without any rationality or moral consideration. Therefore, "unconscious" is the most suitable synonym for "id" as it captures the essence of its meaning in psychological terms.
