    Answer: D) her fear that her death will come sooner rather than later.

    Explanation:

    Terror management theory states that people embrace cultural values and moral ideas to cope with the idea of inevitable death.

    There's a fundamental psychological struggle resulting from our self-preservation instinct colliding with the realization of the inevitability and unpredictability of death. The resulting terror is controlled by adopting cultural symbolic systems that imply immortality, such as religion and the belief in the afterlife.
