    The correct option is A, risk averse

    Explanation:

    Risk aversion is a situation where a person undertaking a business or an investor tries as much as possible to limit exposure to losses by taking drastic steps to ensure the losses do not materialize.

    The publisher in this case is conscious of facing the lawsuit that could result from publishing story and has taken a precautionary measure by not even venturing into the publishing, let alone a lawsuit with substantial amount in damages rears its ugly head.

    A risk seeking investor would go ahead with the publishing since success could bring a juicy income
