    A. True
    Explanation
    Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is indeed classified as an anxiety disorder. It is characterized by persistent intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors or mental acts (compulsions) that individuals feel compelled to perform in order to alleviate anxiety or prevent a feared event. People with OCD often experience intense anxiety and distress when they are unable to perform their rituals or resist their obsessions. Therefore, the statement "Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is a one type of anxiety disorder" is true.

This can be attributed to the overwhelming fear and distress they feel, which consumes their attention and prevents them from being able to focus, cooperate, or collaborate effectively. The intense emotions and physical symptoms associated with a panic attack can make it difficult for individuals to engage in learning or problem-solving activities, as their cognitive resources are primarily directed towards managing their anxiety.
